Roundtable is part of the BSA's continuous training program. It is a monthly meeting where Scouters learn about what is going on in the District and Council, learn about the coming month's program, ask questions, and fellowship with other Scouters. It is very important that every unit be represented at Roundtable every month.
Roundtable is held the 1st Thursday of each month (except June & July) at 7:00pm at the First Presbyterian Church in Paola, Kansas (110 E. Peoria St., across the street from the public library).
Commissioners Meeting is held on the first Thursday of every month at 6:00 pm at the Presbyterian Church in Paola right before Roundtable. All Unit Commissioners are urged to attend every month.
