BSA membership policy resolution released, will be voted on in May
The Boy Scouts of America’s Executive Committee released its membership policy resolution, which proposes removing the restriction denying membership to youth on the basis of sexual orientation alone and maintaining the current membership policy for all adult leaders of the Boy Scouts of America.
To view the entire resolution and learn more about the BSA’s membership standards, please visit: http://www.scouting.org/sitecore/content/MembershipStandards/KnowTheFacts.aspx
The resolution comes after a lengthy review process in which the BSA gathered perspectives from inside and outside the Scouting family.
The voting members will take action on the resolution during the Boy Scouts of America’s National Annual Meeting next month.
America needs Scouting, and our policies must be based on what is in the best interest of our nation’s children. Throughout this process, we work to stay focused on that which unites us, reaching and serving young people to help them grow into good, strong citizens. Our priority remains to continue accomplishing incredible things for young people and the communities we serve.
