Was at a council venturing meeting last night, and 2 out of 6 had not got the memo. One still was under the misconception that a plan was necessary for unit accident insurance to work.

 

As one would expect, it seemed that the folks who are managing active units or program were on top of this.

Tour and Activity Plan Terminated
 

The BSA’s Tour and Activity Plan is terminated effective April 1, 2017. There is no required new process, policy or procedure. Units will no longer need to file any trip forms of any kind.

Scouters are reminded to conduct the Scouting program consistent with BSA rules, regulations and policies. 

Activity Planning and program execution has not changed – parent permission to take youth on a trip is still required, program requirements for annual Health and Medical records for all participants, Cub Scout camping is still limited to council-approved locations, etc.

 

BSA has several planning tools such as Guide to Safe Scouting, Sweet 16 of BSA Safety, Commitment to Safety, etc. A flexible risk assessment strategy has also been adopted for your use which is summarized in the Guide to Safe Scouting or the Enterprise Risk Management Guidebook.

I am still smh at the fact when it was asked whether the original memo was legit, someone in the position of knowing did not simply say "yes".

Direct answers such as "Yes" and "No" are not allowed in any literature of the BSA.

There's a reason why I don't always answer the phone, doorbell or comments on forums.  :)
