We have learned that the current Affiliation Agreement between the Boy Scouts and the United Methodist Church may be revised. The UMC Ad-Hoc Committee on Scouting is also supporting the church using either a Facilities Use Agreement or the Affiliation Agreement. We have also learned that the October 31st date originally set as a target date for the transition will be extended to give the Scouts more time to find a new Chartered Partner if needed. We are making you aware of this so that you can continue to work with your Scout Troops to make any transition as smooth as possible. We will keep you informed of any updates to the Affiliation Agreement and recommendations from the UMC Ad-Hoc Committee on Scouting.
