“That ain’t work’n!”

November Roundtable is this coming Thursday, November 2.  In the past we called this the Fireside Chat were we told you what we were going to do.

“That ain’t work’n!”

What we need to know is what YOU want us to do. What are we doing wrong? What do we need to improve? How can we help you? How can we make Scouting better in the Timberline District? What needs to be done on the Council level?

This will be your opportunity to speak to the Timberline Key 3, Steve Yexley, Dana Smerchek and myself along with the Timberline Professionals, Cheyann Thunberg and Tim Purvis. No holds barred, no need to worry, we see this as a way for all of us to get better.

If you have a complaint, let us know. If you need something, let us know. If you think we are messing up, let us know.  Whatever the issue at whatever level in Scouting, let us know!

This will not be you say something and we spend 20 minutes why we are not right. This will be you say something and we write it down.  We learn so we can improve.

Of all the meetings I’ve had since accepting this position, last years “Fireside Chat” was the most informative and the most productive. We changed our direction and focus as a District Committee because of that meeting. We think we are getting better, however we need your feedback to know for sure.

Please come and let us know what we can do to help Timberline District get better, help us learn how we can help you help the youth in our district.

7:00 PM

LDS Church 9227 W Dartmouth Pl, Lakewood, CO 80227

I look forward to seeing you all there.

New App puts a lot of information in your hands!

The myScouting app puts training, rosters and commissioner tools at your fingertips

Scouters, now you can carry more of the tools you need to do your job everywhere Scouting takes you.

The myScouting app, the BSA’s official app to help leaders facilitate the Scouting program, has a refreshed look and all-new features.

The app is free and available now for Android devices (Android 4.4 KitKat or higher), as well as iPhones and iPads (iOS 9.0 or higher). Just search “myScouting” in your device’s app store.

When you open the app, you’ll log in with your myScouting username and password. The app will show you the tools available to you based on your Scouting position.

You’ll see your member ID, how many days remain until your Youth Protection training expires, links to resources and much more.

Other noteworthy features of the myScouting app include:

  • An organization roster so you can see all active adult members registered under your governance — down to the unit level. You can filter by Youth Protection trained status, position trained status and more. You can easily update this information, too, and even call or email directly from your device. And of course you can update your own contact info — address, phone number, email — right in the app as well.
  • A training center that lets you complete Youth Protection training and other online trainings right from your device. You can also view, save and send completed training certificates in the app.
  • Commissioner tools so commissioners can complete unit assessments, track roundtables, and view and track commissioner assignments.
  • Calendar and announcements pages so Key 3 members can share updates with members registered under their governance.
  • A resources page with links to the latest BSA material, such as the Guide to Advancement or Handbook for District Operations.

The new app supports both English and Spanish. There’s also a night-mode feature that darkens the screen — so you won’t keep your spouse awake when you’re working on Scouting late at night.

4 more Charter Renewal Turn-In/Support Events Remaining

Get your re-chartering checked or turned in at one of these events. If you are having trouble bring everything to one of the early events so you have time to come back to another with any final issues.

If you know of someone who would make a good commissioner please let us know. The brochure attached and downloadable can give you and possible commissioners ideas on who can help and what they do.  Good candidates to become commissioners are unit leaders who have stepped down from the major role in scouting but have tons of experience, knowledge and enthusiasm for the program.
