      I am a registered leader with the UK Scout Association, BSA and GSUSA why can’t BSA and GSUSA act like adults or get WOSM and WAGGGS to mediate? See how UK scouting and guiding works.

      The Scout Association(UK) and Girlguiding UK are separate organisations, but were both founded by Robert Baden-Powell and share similar aims and methods. Co-operation between the association and GirlGuiding UK is encouraged at all levels. “Joint Groups” of Scout and Guide units meeting separately in the same headquarters and operating under the same support structure are recognized and encouraged by both associations. It is also possible to have a “Joint Unit”, which may consist of Rainbow Guides and Beaver Scouts, or Brownie Guides and Cub Scouts, or Guides and Scouts. They meet together as a single unit, sharing leadership and facilities but individual members wear the uniform and follow the training programme of the association that they belong to. Members of Girlguiding UK are invited to join the United Kingdom Scout Contingent to participate in the World Scout Jamborees every four years.

      A good example for all to follow!!

      BSA does frequently invite GS/USA members to activities. So, the acrimony is not as distressing to us boots on the ground.

      I think it would require a good deal of humility to let a decision of a world organization dictate anything to organizations with a US congressional charter.
