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, as important information is provided to take back to each unit.
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. No Commissioner Staff Meetings in June or July.
District Committee Meeting
The District Committee meeting will be held on the second Thursday of each month. It currently takes place at the Church of Jesus Christ of LDS, 28750 Hospital Dr, Paola, KS, at 6:30pm. No District Committee Meetings in June or July.
