RememberSchiff posted a topic in Open Discussion - ProgramMarch 15, 2019: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Priesthood and Family Department sent a list of four new instructions effective June 1, for the Dec 31, transition to general and local church leaders around the world. First, boys are encouraged to remain in their Latter-day-Saint-sponsored Scouting unit through Dec. 31, after which no church units will sponsor any Scouting BSA units. Second, BSA volunteers may provide a church-approved flyer for recruiting Latter-day Saints boys to their packs and troops beginning on June 1. The flyers must be provided to bishops and branch presidents, who will direct them to be posted on bulletin boards in church meetinghouses from June 1 through Dec. 31. Third, BSA recruiting of church members should be done directly with families and not in church meetinghouses. "Bishops and others should not provide BSA with member information," the notice said. Finally, youth registered in Scouting through church-sponsored units who choose to join a community Scouting unit before Dec. 31 will be registered in both units through that date.
