Flaming Arrow District Roundtable
June 1, 2017
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the first Thursday of the month at the Humble LDS Church (19618 Atasca Oaks Dr, Humble) at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas, information on upcoming events and trainings, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional training courses offered around the council. For more information, contact Alice Hamilton. The training courses are being held at LDS Kingwood Building (4021 Deerbrook Drive, Kingwood TX 77339).

Multiple volunteers are needed to make camp a success, so please consider volunteering. Adults and youth volunteers are $15. Adult volunteers can also register their non-Scouting children ages 3-5 who are potty trained or girls ages 6-13. Boy Scouts (under the age of 14) can also register. Youth ages 14-17 can volunteer as junior staff. Registration closes June 6, 2017.
A common element of strong units is they all have a good annual program planned a year in advance. The plan is then shared with all families in the form of an annual program calendar. Two other key elements of successful units are trained leaders and having the right leaders.
