Roundtable

Roundtable is our monthly gathering for unit and district leaders. This is a great way to learn about upcoming events and activities, camping and training opportunities, program updates, new Scouting initiatives, and other ideas to make your Scouting program better.

Roundtables are typically held on the first Thursday of each month (except July) at 7:00pm at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church at 5409 NW 72nd St Kansas City, MO. Please note that a Roundtable date and/or location may be adjusted for holiday or seasonal reasons.

BeAScout.org

BeAScout.org is available as a map search for anyone looking for a Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop, Venturing Crew, or volunteer opportunities. Unit leaders are encouraged to keep their unit's map pin up-to-date at my.scouting.org. If you are looking for a unit in the Northern Lights District area, visit BeAScout.org to find a Scouting unit near you.

Ideal Year of Scouting

Providing a year-round, quality Scouting program should be the goal of every Scouting unit. The Ideal Year of Scouting helps you develop an annual program plan, a budget to go along with that plan, and a fundraising plan to reach your program goals. The results is a well-managed, well-financed Scouting unit. For more information about the Ideal Year of Scouting, go to HOAC Ideal Year of Scouting.

Order of the Arrow

To schedule an OA Election for your Troop or to have the OA Chapter Ceremony Team perform for your Pack's Arrow of Light or Crossover Ceremony in the Northern Lights District, please contact Ron Adams, NL OA Chapter Advisor.

Commissioner Service

District Commissioner Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month (except July) at 6:30pm at Platte Woods United Methodist Church, 7310 NW Prairie View Rd, Platte Woods, MO 64151.

All the Commissioners are friends and resources to the units in our district. Commissioners are the first, and best resource a unit can use when looking for information, asking questions, or trying to solve problems. Keep in mind, your Commissioner may not know all the answers, but they will be able to point you in the right direction.
