Recognizing the diverse beliefs of our chartered organizations, BSA leadership began the discussion about the removal of the national membership restriction on those who are open or avowed homosexuals.

During the course of this discussion, the Boy Scouts of America’s National Executive Board concluded that the organization needs time for a more deliberate review of its membership policy. Accordingly, the officers authorized its committees, representative of Scouting’s members, to further engage representatives of Scouting’s membership and listen to their perspectives and concerns.

Two meetings are scheduled to give members of the Simon Kenton Scouting family an update on the process in place to review Scouting’s Membership Standards, and to help our council provide the National Council a sense of the impact that either a change or no change to these standards will have on our council.
