*IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR OUR AUGUST ROUNDTABLE*

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

You will be able to log in from the Joshua Huddy District Facebook Page

The Meeting will be on August 7 at 7 pm. Want to join us in person? We will be at the Citta Center at the Citta Scout Reservation in Barnegat, NJ. Please gather by 6:50 pm so we can get everyone settled in before we GO LIVE! 

Please make every effort to have at least one representative from your unit login to the meeting!

The roundtable meets once a month. There  is a common session with information for all Scouts and Scouters followed by separate  breakout sessions for Cub Scout/Webelos and Boy Scout items. 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.

 

The Cub Scout & Boy Scout Roundtable will be held on the FIRST WEDNESDAY of each month at 7 pm and we will try to wrap up by 8 pm depending on how many questions District Roundtable Chairman Dan Dantoni gets from our in-person audience and from our Facebook Live participants. 

Attention volunteers: Here is the upcoming Roundtable & OA meeting schedule for the next few months.
• We are looking for volunteers to help as roundtable staff.

District Committee

The district committee meets the 2nd MONDAY of the month.  The district committee is a group of volunteers that serves the local units within the district. The committee is broken into several sub committees which include advancement, training, activities, unit service, membership, camping, and fundraising. The district is always looking for help in any of these areas and has roles that can fit anyone's schedule and skill set.  Contact District Committee Chair Melinda Allen at mallen@kearnybank.com if you are interested in helping out youth on the district level! 7:00pm-8:30pm

 

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 Trinty Solar Stewardship Program for a great fundraising opportunity for your unit and your Joshua Huddy district.
