    This is tremendous. It is the first time I have seen “Scout Wire.” As a volunteer, I really appreciate all the info included in this posting along with the various “sites” which are referenced. I also like the “Share this Site” note.

    Unfortunately, I have been chastised by the local Council executive for sharing emails such as the note from Wayne Brock in September regarding the sad events stemming from the Oregon court action. I was advised the Council & SE will make all decisions about what is to be disseminated & to which volunteers. The mantra of “Volunteer led, Professional guided” does not apply in my Council. This is like the bad old days of being told very little about what is really happening and being expected to accept the staff dictates or to hit the road. Transparency has yet to seep into the operations of many Councils. This is really hurting the “New BSA.”

      Thank you for your note, and I’m glad you’ve found this publication useful. Until very recently, Scout Wire was only distributed to BSA and local council employees (even though it’s accessible to all via the internet, if they happened to stumble across it). In September, however, we began alerting area and regional volunteers about updates made to the site, and will only expand this audience as we move forward. Our charge from the Chief Scout Executive and his leadership team is to put MORE information into the hands of those who need it most — our volunteers — and not LESS.
