Roundtable

Roundtables are regular information meetings held at the VHC Service Center via Zoom at 7:00 PM on the second Thursday of each month for all Cub Scout leaders, Scouts BSA leaders, and Venturing advisors.  Leaders who attend Roundtable Meetings are making use of a great resource to help them do their jobs more effectively.

The Cub Scout program focuses on monthly themes to be presented at the pack level. Helpful hints, activity ideas, ceremonies, games, and other useful information is given.

Leaders of Scout troops discuss a different topic each month that addresses the needs of their youth members and adults.

There is also a “Hot Topic” segment at each Roundtable that presents a topic of interest to all leaders.

The Council urges all leaders to attend as many Roundtables as possible to acquire important information and program updates. Please join us each month to stay connected. 

Register in advance for this meeting:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
