San Jacinto District Roundtable
October 14, 2021 | 7:00 pm
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at University Baptist Church pavilion (16106 Middlebrook Dr, Houston, TX 77059) 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 events and training opportunities, 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.

Ideas on how to produce a successful rally:
- School visits (classrooms, lunchrooms, recess, etc.).
- Send flyers home from school to all prospective members.
- Posters in schools, businesses, community organizations, etc.
- Put Cub Scouting messages on marquees at schools, subdivisions, and businesses.
- Set up a booth at “Meet the Teacher” nights, open houses and charter partner events.
- Post yard signs in every Cub Scout family’s yard.
- Public address announcement at the school on the day of the rally.
- Articles in local newspapers, subdivision newsletters, and chartered partner newsletters.
- Have Cub Scouts wear their uniforms on the day of the rally.
- Plan a second event (e.g., pack meeting) to invite prospective Cub Scouts. Use the second chance flyers.

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. The important Scouting position you hold will be easier and more effective once you develop the skills necessary to deliver a quality Scouting program every Scout desires. Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional trainings offered in the council. For more information, contact Larry Myers.
