This week it was announced that half the furloughed members of my team would return, the other half would be laid off.  I'm glad I didn't have to deal with that stress

 

I think we sometimes forget that layoffs can also be stressful on the employees who remain.

My understanding is that the National Directors of Sea Scouts, Ventures and STEM were axed.  So what does that tell us about the future of these programs?

Sorry about those folks affected but I'm not sure any of us should be surprised by this.   By the numbers of lost just youth membership (of about 1/3)  and at $60 pp that is around $30M+ in lost revenue paid directly to National.    

We have also seen large scale staff reductions at the council levels and a few mergers folks have listed on this forum.

I'm just surprised this didn't happen earlier.  You are absolutely right.  It was not unexpected.  Membership is dropping.  BSA is in bankruptcy.  What else would we expect to happen?  Bankruptcy has consequences.

RE: Permanent BSA Job Cuts.

I'd better start hearing about major cuts at the very top or this will be my wife's and my last year with Scouts BSA.  The amount of money certain people make and the large payout on pensions of this organization is through the roof.  There is no reason on earth some of these people should be making the amount of money they are making when working for a volunteer organization. Especially, one that has a paying membership on a major decline.

So, I decided to take a look at this. We don't have National's IRS 990 forms for 2019 year; they have until May 15, but almost every group I've ever known always files for the automatic 6-month extension, so I don't think anything of it. We do have for 2018, which were filed in October 2019 (again, 6 month automatic extension).

IRS Form 990 (Tax Year 2018)
Part VII Compensation of Officers, Directors, Trustees, Key Employees, Highest Compensated Employees, and Independent Contractors

(A) Name and Title

(D) Reportable compensation from the organization (W-2/1099-MISC).

(F) Estimated amount of other compensation from the organization and related organizations

(D) + (F)
