A monthly event conducted by a district roundtable commissioner and district roundtable staff to help unit leaders plan and carry out their unit programs. A roundtable also provides a forum for leaders to informally discuss problems and challenges they are experiencing and share advice. The district commissioner and district committee use a roundtable meeting to disseminate timely information to unit leaders that might not be
available in any other form. The Eno Chapter of the Order of the Arrow also meets during this time.
