Apache District Roundtable

Roundtable is a forum to give leaders program ideas; information on policy, events, and training opportunities; and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. The roundtable commissioner and staff demonstrate elements of a model meeting that leaders may use as a pattern for their own meetings.  As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, and able to provide a stronger program for Scouts.

Apache District Roundtables are usually, the second Thursday of the Month, starting at 7:00 pm, held at St. Vincent dePaul Church, 6828 Old Reid Road, Charlotte, NC  28210. (map)

Dear Apache District Leaders,

If you learned that only 38% of the teachers at a school were certified to teach, would you send your kids there? Or would you high tail it in the other direction?

In Apache District, only 38% of uniformed leaders are trained to position. What does that say to parents who are thinking about joining, especially these days?

You can help us solve this.  As a the Scoutmaster of Troop 7 and a Key 3 member, we are counting on you to help us spread the word and motivate our leaders about being trained to position.  Currently, Troop 7 has 37% of its leaders trained to position.  Would you do the following in the next two weeks?

1. If you are not trained to position, begin online classes on 
my.scouting.org. They're quick, well done, and informative.
2. Reach out to me, the Apache District Training Chairman, Towner Blackstock, on how to access and evaluate your current training record.  This will help you determine who still needs to be trained, as well as make any corrections to the record that is necessary: townerblackstock@gmail.com.
3. Register today for the Scouter Success Seminar, taught online on September 19th: 
https://sites.google.com/site/bsamcctraining/scouter-success-seminar. (Scouts are welcome for some sessions, too!)

4. Make training a priority in your unit. Set goals. Encourage and recognize training completion. Identify a champion to hold the unit accountable. Share the flyer for Scouter Success Seminar found here: Scouter Success Seminar Flyer

Thank you for helping improve our scouts' experience through trained leaders. Please let me know how I can assist you.

Yours in Scouting,

Towner Blackstock
Apache District Training Chair
