marika replied to marika's topic in Issues & PoliticsThank you so much. We really appreciate it. The address will be forwarded to our Scout Master as well as to Tiffany Moffatt with Fleishman-Hillard public relations (they are handling the Wild Horse and Burro Program). I don't know why it didn't occur to any of us to look in the yellow pages...yikes. I guess we've gotten dependant on the search engines. We didn't see the info at the BSA.org site though. The BLM's representative could have found the address. You're right. They were hoping that we had it handy...which we didn't...so as a courtesty we told them we would look it up.
marika posted a topic in Issues & PoliticsHi, we've just recieved a letter from the firm handling the BLM's Wild horse and Burro program. They are urgently seeking info on how to contact the National Council or Headquarters for BSA as they may have something that would be very beneficial to the Boys. Please, if anyone can help us please email us. We can give you the contact name if need be for the woman in charge of the program. Thank you so much. firstname.lastname@example.org or, email@example.com Also, I'm really confused. We have searched and searched for an address or phone number for National and have found nothing...not even any mention of who "they" are...no names of people at all. We went to the BSA.org site and nothing... Who are they? Are there real people there? Until the BLM asked for a contact number I had never given this any thought. Now that we've been unable to find out any info at all are curiosity is piqued and we feel it is important that this information is available as these are folks whose decisions affect my son in moral, ethical, physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual ways. My son does not take Scouts lightly. It is a way of life something to live up to ...to ever strive for...it leaves him always reaching ahead to the next plateau...I always check out the seeming unimportant things my son does...to make sure things are safe...but, Scouts is a very important part of my family's life...I didn't even bother to check out this organization and relied soley on it's reputation. Does anyone out there know who "the higher ups" are? Is there an organizational head or chairperson, president, etc? Our Scoutmaster didn't have a clue and even searched himself. That's not a good sign. I'm begining to feel I'm blindly following and that's never good to do.
