Roundtable is held the first Thursday of each month at Grace United Methodist Church (11485 S Ridgeview Rd., Olathe KS). Park in the North parking lot and enter through Door #2.
Doors open for gathering at 6:30pm and the program begins at 7:00pm.
Roundtable is our monthly gathering of 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 enhance your Scouting program. It is also a great time to catch up with friends you only get to see once a month at Roundtable! We recommend bringing several people from your unit so as to ensure your unit gets all the information and training available.
We begin with a joint opening of all units and a flag ceremony with the Pledge of Allegiance, Scout Oath, and Scout Law. We will also provide time to make announcements that are applicable to all of our unit leaders. Program-specific announcements (Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Venturing) will be made in each breakout session after the opening is complete. We will entertain announcements from the floor to provide the most up-to-date information to our units. We want to ensure if you have any questions, you are also able to ask them and get answers, as others may have the same questions.
If you would like to have a flyer displayed during the opening slide show please contact Jeff Wandtke or Alisha Harding no later than 5pm the Wednesday before Roundtable. Each unit will have a mailbox to check each month.
Come visit us for our next meeting and bring a friend. Every Scout deserves a well-trained leader!

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 result is a well-managed, well-financed Scouting unit. For more information about the Ideal Year of Scouting, go to HOAC Ideal Year of Scouting.
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.
Unit commissioners will focus on the following four primary areas:
- Supporting unit growth through the Journey to Excellence
- Contacting units and capturing their strengths and needs in Commissioner Tools
- Linking unit needs to district operating committee resources
- Supporting timely charter renewal
To contact your Unit Commissioner please contact Scott A. Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) District Commissioner.
