    • Good , remove that clause.  This would give the accused and his/her attorneys time to review the CRA, any other documents , and respond.  Over the years, we have had a few good people rejected for reasons unknown and  no appeal. If Council knew, they were not saying.  Second point, understood.  If I reject their conditions, I am free to serve elsewhere. Well at least there  is no "do not disparage" clause ,  well not in writing anyway.  Where would I be then?  
    • Even saying that might count as disclosure to a third party to the Chartering Organization. And most lawyers have seemed to say that the language used is broad because its directly quoting the FCRA.
    • What??? If you've got a scout involved, all BSA policies apply.   
    • Since they are separate legal entities "clients" probably includes your council and troop. Without that clause then the most they could do would be to respond with "nope, not that guy."  What private information are you worried about? They have stated they aren't doing credit checks.    I think people should be ready for these things to just be rejected if they have pen changes on them (if anyone actually reviews them). You guys should see the authorizations I signed for every healthcare job I have had. 
    • Quickly since it is unrelated. I would say that Eagle projects are "scout adjacent" but not exactly scout activities.  Your helpers don't have to be scouts or scouters and there are no requirements that any of your helpers are involved.  An eagle project could theoretically be completed with no work from a scout other than the Eagle candidate himself.  That fact to me says this isn't a troop activity and doesn't need two over 21.  (2 adults for YPT is still a good idea probably but I am not sure you would actually have to require them to be YPT trained).   Of course, like many things there seems to be conflicting information.
