NOTABLE EVENTS

SCOUTERS

A major goal of the GBTAC Fort Brooke District this year is to support the Packs and Troops. Part of that is providing information about events that might be of interest, the idea being that these activities take some of the pressure off unit leadership and give the Scouts access to more good activities and programs.

District Roundtables (Online Virtual)

Roundtable is a form of commissioner service and supplemental training for volunteers at the unit level. The objectives of Roundtables are to provide leaders with program ideas, information on policy and events, and training opportunities.

Fort Brooke Roundtable is alive and well, this is the place for information from seasoned scouters that can help new leaders, a place for ideas, retention ideas, and fun.

District Committee Meetings

The entire district committee, chaired by the district chair, meets on a regularly scheduled monthly date. The purpose of district meetings is to build momentum, provide group continuity, ensure good coordination, and make specific assignments to committee members. The district commissioner reports on the special needs of units and requests the help of operating committees to meet those needs.


District Commissioner Meetings:

Commissioner Service is the group within the Boy Scouts of America that provides direct service to each Scouting unit (pack, troop, team, crew or ship). Commissioners are experienced Scouters who help chartered organizations and unit leaders to achieve the aims of Scouting by using the methods of Scouting. They help to ensure that each unit has strong leadership and they encourage training, promote the use of the unit committee and encourage a relationship with the chartering organization.
