One-stop shopping for news on what’s changing in the BSA and when

New Cub Scout handbooks are just part of the story.
New Cub Scout handbooks are just part of the story.

Keeping up with one BSA program change after another (after another) can feel a little like drinking from a fire hose.

It doesn’t have to.

Just consider scouting.org/programupdates your one-stop shop for promotional fliers, training information and the latest news about changes coming in 2014, 2015 and 2016 in Venturing, Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting.

The fliers are especially useful for leaders who want something tangible to distribute to educate parents about changes to BSA programs.

I’ll continue to share and analyze the latest BSA news right here on Bryan on Scouting, but the BSA’s official Program Updates page is an important tool that belongs in your Scouting toolbox — and in your browser’s bookmarks folder.

Merit Badge counselors, there’s a related resource for you. Find promotional fliers about new merit badges at this similarly handy page. (And don’t forget about my regularly updated Calendar of New Merit Badges.)

Thanks to the Innovation team’s Janice Downey and Bob Scott for the info.
