New Unit and District Tools Announced
- Updating your personal info in the BSA's database shouldn't take an act of congress. Fortunately, a just-launched suite of unit and district tools has the power to change your address, phone number, e-mail, or more—with just a click. Also BSA is utilizing on-line customer surveys more and more – and especially with the Voice of the Scout and getting member input on the potential change to the membership standard policy being considered at the National Annual Meeting in May.
Youth safety is the No. 1 concern of the BSA. To increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to 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.
