It seems to me the real way to attract people to roundtables is to
make sure that what happens at the roundtable is helpful to the attendees.
There is yet another way to get people to come, it is to guaraantee that the
necessary resources for successful leadership are all present. You need to
make sure that ALL district leaders are present for the roundtable and that
they are there to transact business with and for the unit leaders. We
also use roundtable night as the place and time to receive and turn in
materials that the unit need to carry out their jobs. Setting up a
"midway" has been a real plus for our roundtables. MOst of our concerned
leaders realize that in our District, the roundtable is the place to go.
Yes, there are some who don't get the message, but roundtable attendance is
one of the items reviewed in determining unit health.
