    First, thread title edited. second, my late Dad was a CPA. When he discovered businesses were borrowing for operating funds instead of capital growth, he’d get out of any positions he held in them forthwith. I pray the National Council does not need these funds for operating revenues. If they do, BSA is on some form of borrowed time.

    I was here before I went to WB. I’m still here.
  10. Worth reading, there were more than a few substantive changes beyond the “happy to glad” of Boy Scouts to Scouts BSA... https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/33088.pdf
  11. I’m in my 60s, had 14 MB as I recall, and I know I’m a “Life for life “...aka, I was a Boy Scout. I have no need to “validate” my life by buying an Eagle. I have far more than one defining moment in my lifetime.
  12. Found this elsewhere. National is consolidating resources. That said, I’m not sure the US Scouting Service Project will be obsolete any time soon... https://troopresources.scouting.org/
