Central North Carolina CouncilA Message From Your Scout Executive: Chapter 11 Update

 

Dear Central NC Council Scouter,

Now that the bar date has been set for November 16th in the national organization’s bankruptcy proceedings, you may have started to noticed advertisements ramping up on your local TV programming.

As you know, this is being done because it is important that the BSA reach as many potential claimants – in this case, survivors of abuse – as possible so they may file a claim. The national organization is undergoing a significant noticing campaign intended to reach millions of current and past BSA members. This includes targeted advertising in the fall that is intended to reach upwards of 100 million individuals, as well as a mail, social media,  and email notice program that will reach in excess of 10 million individuals that will start now through the next few weeks.

The Central North Carolina Council’s local programming is continuing – subject to the current coronavirus policies in place – throughout this process. There should be no change to the local Scouting experience.  The noticing process means the BSA is one step closer to its imperative of compensating survivors of abuse and emerging from Chapter 11 a stronger organization.

 

Nothing is more important than the safety and protection of children in our Scouting programs – it is our top priority. Over many years, we’ve developed some of the strongest expert-informed youth protection policies found in any youth-serving organization. I can also assure you that our volunteers and employees take youth protection extremely seriously and do their part to help keep kids safe.

 

To learn more about how the BSA keeps kids in Scouting safe today, I encourage you to visit www.scouting.org/youth-safety.  

 

We remain as committed as ever to delivering Scouting’s unparalleled experiences to young people throughout our communities in the safest possible environments.  If you have any questions or concern please do not hesitate to reach out.

 

In Scouting,

Stuart Williams, Scout Executive/CEO
