Longs Peak Council

Boy Scouts of America

Special Announcement

Feb 6, 2013

TO: The Longs Peak Council Scouting Family

FROM: John L. Coleman, Jr., Scout Executive/CEO

After careful consideration and extensive dialogue within the Scouting family, along with comments from those outside the organization, the volunteer officers of the Boy Scouts of America's National Executive Board concluded that due to the complexity of this issue, the organization needs time for a more deliberate review of its membership policy.

To that end, the executive board directed its committees to further engage representatives of Scouting's membership and listen to their perspectives and concerns. This will assist the officers' work on a resolution on membership standards. The approximately 1,400 voting members of the national council will take action on the resolution at the national meeting in May 2013.

In summary, no decision was made to change the policy at this time and the National Board will revisit in May at the National meeting.

If anyone would like to voice their opinion directly to National please forward to feedback@scouting.org

As always, John Coleman, Jr. will serve as our contact related to any media or volunteer questions regarding this issue.

Thank you for your continued support of the Longs Peak Council and the young people we serve.

Yours in Scouting,

John L. Coleman, Jr.

Scout Executive/CEO
