BSA Research Panels
Posted 1 December 2014 
Ever wonder who signs off on major changes to Scouting, like the revamped Cub Scout program coming next year?

It’s you. Well, it could be.

The BSA’s Testing and Evaluation Team wants you to join the Scouting Research Panels. As a member, your opinion will be solicited about new programs or proposed changes to existing Scouting programs.

You’ll get surveys — no more than three a year — that will help determine the future of Scouting. You’ll be asked about new merit badges, updated rank requirements or other major changes to the Boy Scouts of America.

The panel is open to all current Cub Scout parents, Boy Scout parents, Boy Scout and Venturing youth members, and registered volunteers (Scouters in any BSA program).

One note from the Testing and Evaluation Team about youth members who want to lend their thoughts: “By law we are not allowed to send surveys directly to youth ages 13 and under. However, if a younger Boy Scout would like to participate in our surveys, he can do so by having his parents register in the Boy Scout Parent Panel and indicate that their son is interested in participating.”

By signing up, you agree to receive surveys via e-mail on a variety of topics related to your Scouting experience, the Scouting program, or other areas of interest to Scouting. 

Your information will only be used for research purposes by the national office of the Boy Scouts of America. Your identity in all surveys is kept confidential and results of the surveys are only reported as a group; no individual responses will be identified. We will not send you more than four surveys a year.

Want your voice to be heard? Have your membership card ready, and go here to sign up:

Unit Leader Award of Merit
Posted 20 February 2011

Quality unit leadership is the key to a quality unit program—and it leads to better Scout retention. Statistics show that if young people stay engaged in the program for at least five years, the BSA’s influence likely will stay with them for the rest of their lives. A quality Scouting experience will help keep Scouts in the program, and the Boy Scouts of America created the Unit Leader Award of Merit to recognize the quality unit leaders who make that happen.

The Unit Leader Award of Merit replaces the Scoutmaster, Varsity Team Coach, and Venturing Crew Advisor award of merit programs. This new recognition has revised requirements, and Cubmasters are also eligible for this recognition.

Submit nominations for this award on the AWARD OF MERIT FORM and information.
