As I mentioned in the last issue of The Commissioner,
development of the 2015–2016 roundtable guides is underway.
Results of the roundtable related surveys sent out in September
are guiding us in some revisions. Thanks very much to all who
participated in the surveys.
Some changes will come with these guides, particularly in
Cub Scouting! Since this is a new program in the rollout stages,
some of the materials most suited for supporting den and pack
leaders need to be modified to reflect these changes. The
commissioners who make up the current Roundtable Guide
Development Team will be working in cooperation with
members of the new Cub Scout Program Design Team
to make these materials most current and relevant. This
will be an exciting opportunity for all of us that most
certainly will result in some interesting outcomes that
previously were not available. Also, some supplemental
materials that more closely align the current
roundtables to the new Cub Scouting program will be
The bottom line is that you can count on updated and vibrant
2015–2016 Boy Scout and Cub Scout roundtable guides being
available by the National Annual Meeting in Atlanta in May.
If you have any roundtable success stories you would like to
share or thoughts and comments to pass along, please send
them to Dan Maxfield at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, I remind everyone that good roundtables equal
better programs in units, which equal increased youth and
unit retention. These are Journey to Excellence goals that
roundtable can impact. We hope you are having a great year of
super roundtables. The youth in our units deserve the best.
