A Message from the Bee Cave District Chair

Posted by cgibson on Feb 19 2020 - 3:07pm
Hello everyone - first I would like to thank each of you for the tremendous amount of time that you give to Scouting, and as your District Chair I want to apologize if you spent any part of yesterday addressing the national BSA bankruptcy through questions or comments from others. I respect that your time is valuable and your volunteer position should focus on your unit needs rather than addressing decisions made outside our purview.
 
I too was surprised to learn of the news and at the District level we coordinated to update our District website with information mirroring the information from the Council and National organizations. As you move through the next week and scouting events, our website has information to answer questions or comments. If you find that the public information does not answer your specific questions, or you need assistance with responding to questions of others, please feel free to reach out to me or the council directly.
 
 
I would also respectfully ask that our message be consistent throughout the BCD units. I cannot speculate on the motivations prompting National BSA’s decision and I respect each individual’s need to seek redress for wrongful acts endured as a child. I was present at the Senate hearings this last year when the Texas Olympic female gymnasts testified in favor of legislation extending the time to file complaints for abuse. Their stories, and the stories of other abused children, affected me deeply and are chilling to recall. I know that each of you work hard to ensure the safety of our children and I appreciate your continued efforts and dedication. 
 
It is my sincere hope that you will not encounter negative comments or repercussions based on your association with Scouting.  If you feel that your youth or adults, including your chartered organization, need to discuss the bankruptcy or motivations, please let me know and we can coordinate efforts to respond. I acknowledge and appreciate that each of you volunteer hundreds of hours to youth in this District and I hope that this email and the information the District has provided will assist in easing any burden created by the bankruptcy news.
 
Thank you again,
 
Stephanie Cook
Bee Cave District Chair
