Roundtable is a monthly district meeting typically held on the second Thursday of every month at Woodlands Methodist Church (2200 Lake Woodlands Dr.) to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. Roundtable meets in Room C210 (Second Floor).  It is best to enter the north side of the main church building - by Fireside Cafe. The meeting room is directly above the fish tank and circular slide. 
 

The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas, information on 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 at facebook.com/GeorgeStrakeDistrict.
