    Condom Distribution at World Jamboree

    DOD, in the midst of OEF & OIF, was no longer interested in the troop bill IT had to pay to support a jamboree on Defense properties. That's part of why the search for the Summit began...

    Condom Distribution at World Jamboree

    First, it's a national camp, so G2SS is not the governing document, National Camp Standards and ACA standards kick into play. Second:. This is a WOSM event, hosted by BSA so BSA can get the revenue. Our rules aren't as important as their rules. Thats how I see this.

    In a word, BSA needs Summit Bechtel to generate revenue to cover the various loans.
  5. Ladies and gentlemen Here is the 2018 Guide to Safe Scouting. I've skimmed it. The most significant change I see is all Scouters are mandatory reporters for purposes of youth protection. Here's a link from the National website, I'm also attaching a copy. I commend it to all for your critical review. Here's the link if you need to copy/paste it into local documents: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/34416.pdf This is the local downloadable copy: 34416.pdf

    They are the authorizing body. BSA doesn't get a WSJ without WOSM. We want the game, we play by their rules. Is that really a difficult concept?

    WOSM authorizes World Jamborees. Their H/S rules apply. What's so difficult in that?

    A Scouter is Courteous.
  10. Here's a link to NCOA on Facebook. Same message. Note VENTURERS are included as eligible youth members.

    Be prepared locked

    BSA is a national member society of WOSM. WOSM is the ultimate grantor of the license for Scouting. The he thread will stay locked until we've had a chance to talk. Future threads will be deleted out of hand.

    2018 GUIDE TO SAFE SCOUTING

    Feedback is a gift, @RichardB i have read outs from Scouters Ons on the Back to Gilwell, Facebook WoodBadgers group that new G2SS and the YP policies on this National link do do fully agree with each other. https://www.scouting.org/training/youth-protection/ Please, would you look into the matter and get back to the field? TIA

    How will you talk about girls troops and packs?

    That sounds like he's marketing for new units...

    How will you talk about girls troops and packs?

    Do what is best for your particular situation. Maintain YP awareness, but do what your committee thinks will work. Now, remember:. The Chartered Partner, through the COR,, has an automatic 50%+1 vote. If he/she says "do it this way", then you shall.
  18. Moderator Note Friendly, Courteous, and Kind, folks. You'll find at least one parallel topic in I&P. This is locked while the Moderators do some clean up.

    You have it. Open your Boy Scout Handbook. Same aims and methods. That's what I've been hearing from Professionals for several weeks.

    How will you talk about girls troops and packs?

    And they'll all be "Scouts BSA" troops. https://www.scoutingnewsroom.org/press-releases/scout-me-in/

    Order of the Arrow for Females?

    Well, now it's late April. We know now the girls youth program will be the same as the boys program, and that troops may be chartered as concurrent committee or two separate committees by the chartered partner. Do we have any updates on where the Order will go? My one thought is "separate but equal" in the honor camping organization will see National fighting in the court of public opinion on a Title IX lawsuit. It may get thrown out of federal court, but it'll be a publicity struggle, and we all know how BSA has performed in recent court of public opinion battles. Now, if the suit is against a local council in a state court...and it's the right state...KATEY Bar the Door. ICS.
  22. If you are on linked in, there is commissioner support forum run by Irving. This just in. This has a hot due date for any new leaders, and you can bet your bottom dollar it'll be required for all when units recharter.

    Linked Troops - What are these?

    Except for the fact I know it will happen, I would bet a beer that there will be at least one pair of troops in the nation who will have the same scoutmaster and ASMs, and the PLCs meet as one.
