Northern Round Table  

Our meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7 pm. Do you have an exciting Pack or Troop activity that you would like to showcase at the 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 login to the meeting. There will be a lot of information shared that evening, so please make every effort to participate. 

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. 


The District Committee/Commissioners Meetings are held on the 3rd  Wednesday of each month at 7 pm via Zoom. Please make every effort to have at least one representative from your unit attend this meeting!  A 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. If you have any suggestions for these meetings, please contact the Northern Lights District Executive.

District Committee Vacancies. The nominating committee has offered up some quality names for some key positions. These include Cub Scout Recruitment Chair, Community FOS Chair, and many others. If you have an interest, let your District Executive know!


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,  principles, and policies of the Scouting movement.

The commissioner is a unit "doctor." In their role as "doctors," 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 Scouting counselors, 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.
