Roundtable is a district monthly meeting held the second Thursday of the month (except July) at 7:00 pm at the LDS Church (10055 West Rd, Houston, 77064) to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of roundtable is 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. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts. Follow us on Facebook.

All new Cub Scouts and their parents are invited to their first district Scouting event. Scouts in kindergarten will work on the Lion's Honor Adventure and launch their rocket. Scouts in first through fifth grade will earn the Bobcat Badge through fun game activities, win prizes, learn to raise and lower the flag, learn about leave no trace and launch their rocket. Parents will get an overview and Q&A on the Scouting program. The event is being held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (10555 West Rd., Houston, TX 77064).

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional trainings offered around the council. For more information, contact Pablo Canovas.
