David Crockett Roundtables are held either on the first Tuesday or Thursday of the month at various locations. The location changes in order to better serve the unit leaders, commissioners, and committee members. The following are the scheduled roundtables:
- Tuesday, December 1, 2015 beginning at 7:00 PM
- Location: First United Methodist Church, 200 W Jefferson St., Pulaski, TN 38478
Since David Crockett has several units spread out over four counties, we need some help ensuring each unit receives outstanding district support. We are building up our Unit Commissioner staff in order to better serve our units. If you or someone you know is interested in being a part of our Commissioner team, please contact the District Executive – Greg Mann or the District Commissioner – Jake Jones. We would love to have you serve as a Unit Commissioner to help support our District. For more information about what it takes to be a Commissioner check out http://www.scouting.org/Home/Commissioners.aspx
**Youth Protection Policy Change**
As of June 1st 2015 all units that are rechartering, any adult on the roster must have their Youth Protection Training up to date. If the recharter is submitted with an adult who has expired Youth Protection Training, the entire charter will be held up. Youth protection training is available online through my.scouting.org and in person. Visit the David Crockett training tab to learn about youth protection training opportunities. All adults registered with the unit are required to take Youth Protection Training and the training expires after two years.
2016 Spring Recruiting
Spring recruiting is extremely important to our program. Strong units provide the best program for our Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers and Explorers. New members -- along with a strong program -- get more adults involved.
- Cub Scouts - invite boys (new or former Scouts) to join in exciting summertime activities coming up. Information can be provided regarding April and May pack meetings at Roundtable. Fliers can be prepared to be delivered to school. Invite prospective members to participate in regularly scheduled pack meetings.
- Boy Scouts - Appoint a troop membership chairman. Target fifth- and sixth-graders and hold a rally featuring a model campsite and interesting activities at a school, church or shopping mall. Utilize high-adventure surveys to obtain contact information for new Boy Scout prospects. Make a personal phone call to parents. Hold a troop open house or an “invite a friend” event.
- Venturing/Exploring - Schedule a crew open house this spring and invite new members to join. Target 8th grade youth. Provide information regarding the open house. Invite a friend event at Roundtable or contact your district executive. When requested, fliers/posters can be prepared for distribution.
