Blue Elk District Unit Service

Roundtable

Roundtable is where you can come and get program ideas for your Pack, Troop or Crew. It is also a time to get information on upcoming events and visit with other leaders in the district.

Roundtables are held the first Thursday of each month (except July) at 7:00 p.m. We meet at Colonial Hills Community of Christ Church located at 3539 SW 7 Hwy in Blue Springs. Our Roundtable staff puts on an outstanding roundtable giving all of our Packs, Troops, and Crews excellent program ideas.

Roundtables provide unit leaders with the skill to do and the will to do what is needed to ensure that every member of every unit has a great Scouting experience.  They build upon the foundation provided by position-specific basic training and each leader’s commitment to serving youth through Scouting.

Roundtables exist to:
  • Provide information
  • Capture information
  • Offer current program training
  • Provide networking opportunities

Roundtables are a collaborative effort coordinated by Unit Service (commissioners) and supported by commissioned professionals and district operations (Program, Membership, and Finance).

Active participation by all roundtable participants increases the value of attendance for everyone.

Journey to Excellence

JTE Logo

"Scouting’s Journey to Excellence” is the BSA’s new council performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and measure the performance of our units, districts, and councils.
