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 get ideas to make your Scouting program better.

Roundtables are typically held on the first Thursday of each month (except July) at 7:00 p.m. at Olathe Community of Christ Church, 15520 S Ridgeview Rd., Olathe, KS 66062.  Please note that a Roundtable date and/or location may be adjusted for holiday or seasonal reasons.

The January 2015 Roundtable will be held on the second Thursday of the month, Thursday, January 8, 2015, due to the New Year's Day Holiday.  There is no change in venue.  Please update your calendar!

District Leadership Opportunities

The men and women who take the time to volunteer at the district level do that to help support units by running better programs; growing youth and adult participation in their Packs, Troops, Teams and Crews; and funding the activities we plan to keep young people excited about being in Scouting.  There are many different opportunities for you to share your talent with other Scouts and Scouters by volunteering at the district level.  For more about volunteering as a district leader, go to Red-Tailed Hawk District Leadership.

District leaders meet on a monthly basis.  Typically, these meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month (except July).  The Commissioner Meeting is held at 6:30 p.m., immediately followed by the Committee Meeting at 7:30 p.m.  These meetings are held at Indian Creek Community Church, 12480 S Black Bob Rd, Olathe, KS 66062.  Please note that district leadership meetings dates and/or locations may be adjusted for holiday or seasonal reasons.

The January 2015 District Meetings will be held on the third Thursday of the month, Thursday, January 15, 2015, due to the New Year's Day Holiday.  There is no change in venue.  Please update your calendar!

Upcoming District Activities

Adult Leader District Recognition Awards

Each year at the District Annual Recognition Dinner, we take the opportunity to thank the adult volunteer leaders in the Packs, Troops, Teams, Crews and district level in Red-Tailed Hawk District for the time they spend with young people in their units to make the Scouting program exciting and engaging.  Adult volunteers at the unit level that make the program fun and support young people at Den Meetings and campouts and high adventures and everything else a Scouting unit does deserve a little time to be thanked and recognized for their effort; district leaders that take the time to lend their knowledge and expertise to unit leaders also deserve that recognition!  To nominate an individual for one of these awards, click here to download any or all of the nomination forms from the Red-Tailed Hawk Activities page.
