The BSA’s Chief Scout Executive is now blogging, tweeting

As the Boy Scouts of America’s 12th Chief Scout Executive, Wayne Brock continues a solemn tradition that dates back to November 1911 when James E. West became the first Chief.

But let’s remember July 2013 as the moment when Chief Brock started a new tradition, one Mr. West never could have seen coming.

Yes, our Chief is now blogging and tweeting.

Over at the Chief’s Corner blog, which launched yesterday, you’ll get words of wisdom directly from the man who is effectively the BSA’s CEO. Through his posts, Chief Brock will bring Scouts and Scouters closer to the movement while showcasing the magic of Scouting for those who aren’t yet members.

I’m told the Chief will post once or twice a week and focus on issues relevant to the Scouts and Venturers with whom you work. That means leadership, service, adventure, health, and more. From time to time, Chief Brock will share updates on his travels across the country to visit packs, troops, teams, posts, ships, and crews.

And on Twitter, follow @bsachief for the latest dispatches from Chief Brock. The account has been used off and on since 2010, but along with the launch of Chief’s Corner, you can expect great insight and information on a more-regular basis.

Or, as the Chief himself tweeted last week: 

Join me in this exciting new opportunity to follow our Chief.

  1. Unless I missed the option, it would be nice if we could subscribe to the Chief’s blog so we get an email when a new message is posted (like Bryan’s). I don’t have time to keep checking his blog site to see if something new has been posted.

      • Hmm. That option isn’t available when I view the page. Looking at the other comments, it looks like others aren’t seeing it either. I’m not interested in RSS feeds. Bryan’s method works great for me and I wish the Chief’s blog did the same thing.

  2. You can subscribe to the blog’s RSS feed so you don’t have to keeping checking the site for new posts. But based on how Google shut down their RSS reader yesterday, RSS doesn’t seem to be very popular even if it is quite helpful.

    • Oops. This was supposed to be a reply to Dave’s comment:

  3. Hey Brian, what’s the RSS link? I don’t see a link on the blog itself, and I tried all the obvious URLs I could, but I’m unable to find an RSS feed.

  4. Sir:

    Do you do Eagle Scout letters of congratulations? If so, please let one of your staff members know so I might send pertinent information. Thank you.
