    • Respectfully, I see it differently. The program of the BSA really have never been the primary problem for the BSA.  It's been loss of interest.  Changing the basics of the program won't help.  What will help is a concerted effort to make it more fun.  Not fun through different badges, but more fun through a better understanding and application of the program we already have.
    • That's one of my few purist hopes.  I do not want to see the uniform go away.  
    • We have an assistant Advancement Chair the serves as the Board of Review Coordinator.  He's generally at meetings twice a month.  We ask scouts to contact him ahead of time to let him know, but it's not a strict rule.  If a scout shows up and requests one, he'll organize it on the spot if possible. Part of the role of the BOR Coordinator is to develop training materials for adults.  We will have any non ASM sit on a BOR.  It could be a parent or Committee Member.  Over time, the BOR Coodinator has built up enough folks that are knowledgeable in conducting a board that we always have a lead adult who is experienced and two other adults who may or may not be.   This has worked very well for us and has been a great way to get an outgoing parent involved.
    • I think it has  less to do with Scouting history and a lot more to do with geography.  I'm east coast born, raised, and educated.  I live in a pretty progressive city and have for 20 years. I'd suggest if we do that, let's start a separate thread.  I think that cuts down on the tendency to try & convince others.
    • I'm excited about the recent changes as well.  Initially I was apprehensive about girls, but after a couple of months I thought it through and am very excited about it. I'm a father with a son and two daughters.  I love my daughters dearly and want them to have the same opportunities that I did.  They are both Girl Scouts now and may stay that way - it's their choice.  But, I'm very excited that they have the opportunity to benefit from the program that I did. I was a Cub Scouts and earned Arrow of Light.  I was a Boy Scout and stopped at Star.  I was not OA.  As an adult, I've not been a Scoutmaster - but have been: Asst. Cubmaster, Cubmaster, Den leader, Pack Committee Chair, Troop Committee Chair, Crew Committee Chair, and District Committee member.  My brother is a Life for Life and OA member.  My father was an Eagle, Webelos Den leader, and Cubmaster.  My grandfather a Scoutmaster and Silver Beaver recipient.  Scouting has very deep ties in our family.
