Need Topic Ideas for Scoutmaster Roundtable....

Recommended Posts

our new roundtable commish did a nice job

 

how about Tent and gear maintenance......he had a guy from a local canvas place come in and talk about zippers and tent repair....he showed a video on how he replaces zippers.....

 

We had the local RC club come in and do a talk and demo...

 

We did a dutch oven cook off night....

 

Best trip night.....with contact info for the venues.

 

hidden treasures....local gems that few folks know about.

 

They did a child abuse one.......didn't care for it....a rich white woman telling us that kids can't be left home alone till they are 15....really in my hood, they are left home alone as early as 6....

 

Didn't like the ADD one....Blow hard physician that sees the pill as the answer.

My district released our Roundtable schedule for the upcoming year a few weeks ago. (The incoming Roundtable Chair has been serving as the training chair for a few years, so it's heavy on training issues). All talks are given by either active Commissioners or unit leaders. The goal is a 30-45 minute presentation with 15-30 minutes of on-topic discussion time afterward.

 

New RT commissioner populated the list by sending a 2 question email to the district leaders: 1) What topics do you want to discuss this year at RT? 2) What topics would you be willing to present?

 

September

Cub Scout Leaders: Energizing your Cub Pack and Getting Parents Involved

Boy Scout Leaders: The Trail to Eagle

 

October

All leaders joint meeting: Working with Scouts with Special Needs and Disabilities

 

November

Cub Scout Leaders: Ages and Stages: Youth Development for Cub Scout Leaders

Boy Scout Leaders: The Volunteer Recruiting Process

 

December

All leaders joint meeting: Bullying: Prevention and Intervention

 

January

Boy Scout Leaders: Developing Youth Leadership within the Unit

I don't think the pill is an answer but I have found nothing else that works. What is the magic answer ?

Google "Boy Scout Roundtable Planning Guide"...there is an official BSA pub, plus many councils have uploaded their own. Should be enough there to keep you busy. Don't try to reinvent the wheel.
