During an informal review of our Roundtable meetings, I came up with
the suggestion that we plan some sort of opportunity for Scouters to
talk with each other as part of the evening's activities. I think
people are more interested in coming back if they feel there is
someone there they want to chat with or they know they will be able
to share ideas with. I think the chance to "network" can often be
incorporated into the presentation, but I'm looking for any ideas that
have worked for you.
How do you help people get to know each other; especially meet
someone they don't know?
What about a mixer that they can use in their Packs (especially with
Fall recruitement coming up)?
How do you provide the opportunity for interacting without making the
meeting run overtime? We have some Scouters that drive for an hour
to get to Roundtable and don't appreciate having to stay late; who
can blame them? We always have others who stay after the meeting's
conclusion to finish their conversations (my favorite part, to be
sure!!). This is often the only opportunity we have to see each
other besides at other District/Council events.
