Aug. 11 Update to BSA Facilities Usage Agreement
As promised in last week's announcement, we do have guidance going forward for Scouting and the chartering questions. First, we want Scouting to succeed in the Mississippi United Mississippi Conference. What I have learned and the instructions I can give you to make that happen is as follows:
- The BSA has said that we have an extension until December 31, 2022, without needing to sign a charter.
- DO NOT sign a new charter. This advice comes from UMC legal counsel. This will allow the promised insurance to be in place during the transition.
- DO get the facilities use agreement in place if the meetings are held in your facility. Remember that this is a must with any group not under the control of the administrative board of the church.
If you have further questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Blessings in your work in Scouting.
