2020 BSA and the Church of Latter Day Saints (LDS)

The Church of Latter Day Saints (LDS) has been in the process of changing it’s relationship with the Boy Scouts of America for several years. These changes have affected Venturing and are now affecting Cub Scouting and Scouts, BSA programs. This discussion is intended to provide links to official announcements and other discussions.

2019-2010 Transition Timeline - June through December 2019

• BSA volunteers and professionals begin registration of Church youth who desire to continue their Scouting experience after December 31, 2019. These youth will be multiple-registered in their current Church Scouting unit and in their new Scouting unit until January 1, 2020.
• Youth are encouraged to stay actively engaged in their current Church Scouting unit until December 31, 2019. Those who desire, may begin active participation on their own in their new Scouting unit starting January 1, 2020.

Affects on 2020 district membership reports?

My comment: This transition may affect district and council membership and JTE membership reports for July 2019 - February 2020. (Not verified yet).
