January 31, 2013

Dear Friends of Scouting,

As most of you know by now, the National Board is going to be discussing their policy regarding sexual orientation next week. We wanted to inform you about what we know so far and ask for your patience.

None of us was aware of this consideration at the National Board level until last Friday. We have received very little communication regarding this; however, there is a conference call scheduled for this Friday in which our Key Three members will be included. The call will be a briefing run by the National Key Three: Wayne Perry, President; Tico Perez, National Commissioner; and Wayne Brock, Chief Scout Executive. The National Board has not come to any conclusions yet and we anticipate learning more about their process on this call. Unfortunately, the call will be in a “listen only” format and will not allow us to ask questions or interact with the National Key Three, but we are hopeful we’ll have additional information to share afterwards.

We are sorry for any disruption to your mission and work in Scouting. We were all surprised by the topic coming up and need to gather more information. We appreciate all that you do for Scouting. You give of your time, treasure and talents to this wonderful organization and that is what makes it one of the greatest in the world at helping to build our model citizens and leaders of the future. Currently there are three
ways you may submit feedback to the National Office:

• Email Feedback@Scouting.org
• Visit the contact page at www.scouting.org/ContactUs
• Call 972-580-2000

Not sure which way they are advocating, but they are concerned, so they sent this letter. I for one am sick of the LDS yanking everyone's chain in the Boy Scouts, so I'm pretty sure that may be a little of what they are afraid of.
Thought I'd let you all send your thoughts on the matter.
