Roundtables

Roundtables are a form of commissioner service and supplemental training for volunteers at the unit level. The objectives of roundtables are to provide leaders with program ideas, information on policy and events, and training opportunities. It is a forum for sharing experiences and enjoying fun and fellowship with other Scout leaders. When skillfully executed, the roundtable experience will inspire, motivate, and enable unit leaders to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.

2017 Roundtable Topics

January: Camp Kick Off

The January Roundtable will combine with the Annual Camp Kick-Off Dinner.  Unit leaders and their SPL’s are invited to attend to hear firsthand what Summer Camp can offer both Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. Please note that RSVP’s are required to ensure there is enough food.

February 9: Consolidation Q&A

Join us for an informal Q&A session about the consolidation discussions between Knox Trail Council and Old Colony Council.   Rather than a general presentation the focus will be on how the proposed consolidation may impact units directly and council administrator Bob Dorn will be taking questions directly from attendees. .

April 13: Bullying and Scouting

We do a lot to prevent bullying in our units but how can we help our Scouts protect themselves and others outside of the unit?  Marlborough’s community relations officer Keith Moro will join us as we talk about how we can teach our Scouts to stay safe and stand up for others both in the real world and online.

May 11: Scouting For All: Resources for units who have Scouts with special needs 

Scouting is a valuable program and is available to all Scouts.  We encourage leaders who have and who need advice on helping Scouts with ADHD, Autism, different physical needs, etc have a high quality experience in the Scouting program.
