Friends, 
Once again, a special thanks to all who participated in the Membership Standards Study Initiative. The
process in which you participated was historic. Through the process, the Boy Scouts of America proved that
a volunteer-led organization can listen and learn from its members and move forward to serve more youth. 
We are now in the implementation phase of the initiative. Between now and Jan. 1, 2014, an
implementation task force made up of volunteers and professionals is looking at every aspect of our
organization to implement the new membership policy in the best way for the youth and families we serve. 
In the weeks ahead, you will begin receiving updates that will outline the work of the implementation group
and its progress. 
On May 24, Rex Tillerson, past president of the Boy Scouts of America, spoke to attendees of our National
Annual Meeting. His message about Scouting, change, and the future of the BSA was powerful. I’m proud to
share those remarks with you here. I encourage you to share this video with anyone who cares about the
Scouting movement.
Please take up to eight minutes to hear from Rex.
