Scouts-L Mail Archive for August of 1999: Are "Roundtables" dead?
Are "Roundtables" dead?
Thu, 12 Aug 1999 09:52:12 -0600
Greetings to the list.
Our district "roundtable" was held last night and I was quickly
(emphatically) informed that it is no longer to be refered to as "Scout
Roundtable" but as "Leaders' Meeting". Similarly, the Commissioners'
meeting and district commitee meetings have been renamed (I seem to recall
the terms "facilitators" and "operations").
My question to the wisdom of the list: Did I miss something? Are
"Roundtables" a thing of the past?
As a former Boy Scout "Roundtable" Commissioner of fairly successful
monthly meeting (>50% of units in attendance regularly), I'm somewhat
familiar with the objectives of this meeting and the "training" that is to
be carried out there. My impression (from last night's "encounter") is
that these "leaders' meetings" are to be more information transfer
oppertunities than anything with the majority of the activities directed
toward the Cub Scout program.
Because I am also serving as the newsletter editor, using the correct terms
Thanks for your help in advance.
