We did this and the attendance was exactly the same. I didn't like it.
After working all day, going to roundtable, and then having another meeting
afterward (done by 9!?!?) was just too much.
To answer your question with a question, how come certain Scout leaders
don't attend roundtable? It's probably the same response to your UC
question: level of committment to the program. This is what you have to
work on first--attendance at the meetings will be a natural consequence to
the committment. With some, it never comes. With others, training and
fellowship brings about the committment. Either way, you have your work
cut out for you, but it's very rewarding when you get results.
Please persevere. It's never perfect, but there are bright spots!
