Upcoming Meetings Schedule:

Joshua Huddy Round Table  - October 14, 2020

This Month our Virtual Meeting will be held via Zoom/ Facebook Live.

You will be able to log in from the Joshua Huddy District Facebook Page - you MUST be following the Joshua Huddy Facebook Page to watch us LIVE.

The Meeting will be on October 14, 2020 at 7 p.m. That is the second Wednesday of October.  Do you have an exciting Pack or Troop activity that you would like to showcase at Roundtable?  Let us know ahead of time and we can showcase it at the Roundtable during our common session. 

Please make every effort to have at least one representative from your unit log in to the meeting. There will be a lot of information shared that evening, so please make every effort to participate. 

The roundtable meets once a month on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. The district roundtable  is a meeting to provide the following for the full family of Scouting units:

  •          Skills, techniques, information, program ideas—the know-how that makes for successful unit operation.
  •          To provide unit leadership with the will to do—the morale, enthusiasm, inspiration, and vision that periodically renew the desire to serve youth.

 

• We are inviting guest speakers to share their expertise on our rich Scouting experiences.  Please contact Michelle Petrosino, District Executive, to discuss what topic is in your area of expertise.

District Commissioner Staff

The commissioner staff meets once a month and focus on the following four primary areas:

  • Supporting unit growth in the Journey to Excellence criteria

  • Linking district committee resources to the unit

  • Visiting units and logging the visits into the Unit Visit Tracking System (UVTS)

  • Supporting on-time charter renewal

A commissioner plays several roles, including friend, representative, unit "doctor," teacher, and counselor.

The commissioner is a friend of the unit. Of all their roles, this one is the most important. It springs from the attitude, "I care, I am here to help, what can I do for you?"

The commissioner is a representative. The commissioner helps represent the ideals, the principles, and the policies of the Scouting movement.

The commissioner is a unit "doctor." In their role as "doctor," they try to see that their units make good "health practices" a way of life. When problems arise, they act quickly.

The commissioner is a teacher. As a commissioner, they will have a wonderful opportunity to participate in the growth of unit leaders by sharing knowledge with them.

The commissioner is a counselor. As a Scouting counselor, they will help units solve their own problems. Everyone needs counseling from time to time, even experienced leaders.

If you are interested in volunteering as a commissioner, please contact Scott Ireland.

Please look into the Trinity Solar Stewardship Program for a great fundraising opportunity for your unit and your Joshua Huddy district.
