A message from our Council Key III Leadership: Tom Stoner - President, Eric Renker - Commissioner and Bill Davis - Scout Executive; At the National Council's Annual meeting in May volunteer delegates voted to change the BSA membership standards policy. Here you can view the FACTS vs. FICTION
in regards to that policy change. Chartered Organization Representatives, Committee Chairs and Unit Leaders will be receiving additional information concerning "frequently asked questions" via email.
Youth safety is the No. 1 concern of the BSA
. To increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to prevent abuse than already exist today in Scouting, the Boy Scouts of America is implementing several important changes to further enhance its Youth Protection policies
. Please see the information sheet
for steps to ensure these policies are fully implemented.
