Roundtable is a monthly gathering of adult leaders.  The meeting goal is to prevent the “reinvention of the wheel”.  Experienced volunteers share tips on running a great program and everyone gets to bounce their questions of the assembled leaders.  Roundtable has been especially valuable during the pandemic as leaders share their solutions to current challenges.  Many handouts can be found in the district document library.

There is a scouting event in your town!

Contact Shawn Trimmer, [email protected], 973-765-9322 x229 to learn where to join your local pack, troop, crew, or post.
