Roundtable Staff Objectives

Roundtables are a form of commissioner service and supplemental training for volunteers at all levels. The objective of roundtables is to give leaders program ideas; information on policy, events, and training opportunities; and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. The roundtable commissioner and staff demonstrate elements of a model meeting that leaders may use as a pattern for their own meetings. The roundtable experience will inspire, motivate, and enable unit leaders to provide a stronger program for their Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, Webelos and Boy Scouts.

Meeting Times:

Monthly from September to May

The First Thursday night of the month

7 PM - 8 PM

Saint Luke’s United Methodist Church, Danville VA

Doctorate Commissioner Science Award


The Doctorate Commissioner Science Award is award to a Commissioner upon completion of a standardized program leading to the completion of a thesis or project and the award of the Doctorate of Commissioner Science from a College of Commissioner Science.

The College of Commissioner Science program is designed to have a commissioner learn, through a series of training classes, followed by work experiences to ensure a quality program throughout Scouting. This training will take a number of years to complete. The commissioner finalizes his/her training with an approved thesis or project for the benefit of the Scouting program. This assists both new commissioners as they learn, and seasoned commissioners as they train others.

James West Fellowship Award



James West Fellowship Award Knot







The James West Fellowship Award is probably the one award that sparks the most misunderstanding when spotted on a uniform. Some folks immediately assume that the award was simply purchased, which is not accurate. This award is presented to individuals based on a contribution of $1000 or more to the local Council's West Fellowship Fund. Only registered Scouters or youth members receive and wear the square knot.

The money may be given by a group of Scouters or individual Scouter to honor a fellow Scouter, as a memorial on the death of a Scouter, or to recognize an achievement. For example, a group of Scouters could put the money together to recognize the outstanding efforts of an individual who spent years doing publicity work for a local Council through newsletters, press releases, web pages, etc., for which there is no official recognition. The award can also be given to an individual who makes a contribution on his/her own behalf. Regardless of the source of funding, the award is used by BSA to generate badly needed funds to support critical local Council and national programs which have suffered major losses due to diversion of funding for national-level resolutions of risk-management issues.



William D. Boyce New-Unit Organizer Award



William D. Boyce New-Unit Organizer Award knot

Description


The William D. Boyce New-Unit Organizer Award is presented to recognize volunteers who organize one or more traditional Scouting units. The award may be worn on the adult uniform. The award is a square knot placed over the three colors representing the three phases of our program—Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, and Venturing. A volunteer can earn the knot by organizing one traditional unit, and a program device can be earned for up to three additional units organized.

The award recognizes volunteers for organizing traditional units after March 1, 2005.
The award is administered by the Relationships Division and will be presented by the local council.

Requirements:


  1. With the approval of the district committee chair, the volunteer serves

    as the organizer and completes the successful organization of one new traditional

    unit (Cub Scout pack, Boy Scout troop, Varsity team or Venturing crew).
  2. The volunteer organizes the unit by following all procedures as published

    in the “New Unit Organization Process” (No. 34196), particularly ensuring that

    new unit leadership is trained, a program for the new unit is organized and

    in operation, the new unit committee is functioning, a unit commissioner is

    assigned, all paperwork for the new unit is completed and processed, and the

    unit charter is presented to the chartered organization.
  3. The Boy Scouts of America realizes that quite often several individuals

    help to organize a new unit. However, for this award, only one volunteer can

    be recognized as the organizer for a new unit.
  4. To further recognize the volunteer’s effort for organizing additional new

    units, a program device can be earned and worn on the new-unit organizer knot.

    The program device represents the type of unit organized (a Cub Scout pack,

    Boy Scout troop, Varsity team, or Venturing crew.) The knot and up to three

    program devices may be worn in recognition for organizing up to four new traditional

    units. Multiple program devices for organizing units in the same program may

    be earned and worn.
  5. The new-unit organization award recognizes volunteers for organizing traditional

    units after March 1, 2005.

Recognition Items


  • New-Unit Organizer Award Certificate
  • New-Unit Organizer Award Uniform Insignia
