BSA has a Downloadable PDF 2023-24 Planning Calendar - includes all the major Scouting milestones and also religious holidays and so on. A great resource to add your unit's events onto - you can type right into the days on the calendar.
First Wednesday of each month: District Committee Meeting at 7:00PM - during the Covid-19 Social Distancing time they will be held as virtual meetings via Zoom. Details will be sent out to committee members before the meeting. If you are not on the committee, but would like to attend the virtual meeting, contact key3@TCScouts.org (No DC meeting in August)
Second Wednesday of each month: District Leaders' Roundtable and Commissioners Meeting at 7:00PM. In-person Roundtable will be held at Tompkins-Cortland Community College (TC3) in Dryden and those who cannot attend in person, or are uncomfortable doing so, can attend virtually using Zoom.com. We will have breakout rooms for Cubs, Scouts and Commissioners. Details for the Zoom link will be sent out to unit leaders and commissioners and through Taughannock Announce e-mail list before the meeting. If you do not receive notification and want to attend Roundtable, contact Roundtable@TCScouts.org for the sign-in information. (no roundtable in July, August Roundtable is kickoff)
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 Tuesday of each month: District Commissioner's Cabinet - Zoom conference call at 7:30PM - all Commissioners are requested to attend. The link will be sent out each month before the meeting, but it's the same as we use for the Roundtable in case you didn't get it. Anyone interested in being a Commissioner or who would like to attend, send an e-mail to DC@TCScouts.org (no Commissioner's Cabinet in July or August)
Third Thursday of each month: Council Commissioner's Cabinet - Zoom meeting for Council Commissioner, ACC's, District Commissioners and ADC's. Other Commissioners are welcome - contact DC@TCScouts.org for the link.
District Advancement Committee Meeting: Fourth Thursday in Sep, Oct, Jan-Apr and Jun; third Thursday in Nov, Dec, May; - 7:00PM. Contact email@example.com for details.
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
