Monthly Recurring Events

First Wednesday of each month: District Committee Meeting - 7:00 Dryden Community Cafe, Main Street, Dryden - enter through the parking lot in the rear of the Cafe  - (note: July meeting is Tuesday, July 25th at Camp Barton, no August meeting)

Second Wednesday of each month: District Leaders' Roundtable, Order of the Arrow Chapter Meeting and Commissioners Meeting - 7:30 - Dryden Presbyterian Church at 6 North Street (no roundtables in July or August)  

The monthly roundtable is the principal training and communications program for the District. All units in the District should have at least one representative attend each roundtable. Preferably, this is the unit leader and/or assistant(s), but Committee Members and parents are also encouraged to attend. Troop Senior Patrol Leaders and Venturing Crew Presidents are also welcome. The Roundtable will start with a general meeting for all positions, then there will be separate breakouts for Cub packs, Scout troops, (hopefully) Venture/Explorer crews/posts, and Commissioners.  District Committee members and Chairs of District program committees are also encouraged to attend Roundtables.

Third Wednesday of each month: Council Coordinated Committees Meeting (council) - 7:00 - Baden-Powell Council Office, Route 12, Kattelsville (Chenango Forks). 

All of the council-level program committees (activities, advancement, camping, membership, properties, and training) meet on the same night each month at the Council Office. While this is not a Taughannock District activity, as such, anyone from the district who is interested in helping on any of these committees at the council level, or who would like to meet the council chairmen and committee members on any of the council committees is welcome to attend (for more information, see the Baden-Powell Council website)  

District Advancement Committee Meeting: Fourth Thursday in Sep, Oct, Jan-Apr and Jun; third Thursday in Nov, Dec, May; July meeting is on Tuesday July 25th at Barton; no August meeting  - 7:00PM - TC3 - Room 262

The monthly District Advancement Committee meetings will be a "one stop shopping" place for prospective Eagle Scouts to get their projects reviewed and approved, meet with mentors, and have their Eagle Board of Review. The Advancement Committee is also charged with encouraging and coordinating advancement at all program levels (Cub, Scout and Venturing). Each unit is requested to send a representative to the District Advancement Committee - for more information, contact advancement@TompkinsCortlandScouts.org
