November Roundtable

 

November is Re-Charter month!  So to help our unit grow our General session topic will be a discussion on Journey to Excellence or JTE.  Jim Benson will lead a discussion on what JTE is about and how it can help your unit measure its success and how to set those goals to take you unit to the next level.

At the Cub breakout session we will discuss the transition from Webelos/Arrow of Light to Boy Scouts. This is an important stage in a Cub Scout’s journey. It is crucial that leaders in Scouting do everything they can to make the process as seamless and inviting as possible for Webelos and their parents. What can you do as a Pack leader or Den leader to help your scouts and parents? Mike Schroll from Pack 159 will lead us in a lively discussion and review some best practices.

To keep with the Webelos to Scout transition, Ian Taylor from Troop 309 will tackle the same subject from the Troop side.  While the Webelos Leader is there to help the youth transition seamless, it’s the Scoutmaster that will be the Scout’s guide on their next journey.  Ian will discuss and share ideas how Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters can start that transition while the youth is still months away from joining a Troop and how to retain that Scout during the first year and beyond!
