2020 Spring Area 2 Key Leader Conference

***Event Cancelled / Postponed***

Final decisions about holding the Area 2 Key Leader Conference in late 2020 (Oct/Nov) will be made in May. (updated 03/28/20)

The conference committee met today (March 9th) by conference call.  Due to health concerns over the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19)  in the area near the conference site, the committee has decided to postpone the March 28th Area 2 Key Leadership Conference, at this time.  The committee is considering dates in the fall of 2020 to hold the conference, but no date has been identified at this time. If you have already registered for the event, your registration will be canceled and your credit card will not be charged. Once the new date of the conference is determined, a new registration invitation will be sent allowing you to again register for the conference.

The Area 2 Key Leadership Conference Committee wishes to thank you for your interest in attending this year’s conference.  The committee is hopeful that you’ll be able to attend the conference in the fall once the date is determined.

Have a wonderful day.  Be safe.  And stay healthy.

Pat Bain, Conference Co-Chair // Paul H. McClain, Conference Co-Chair

Youth Protection Reminder for Remote/Virtual Scouting

It’s critical that we all continue to keep youth protection top-of-mind whether our Scouting activities are taking place in person or through a digital platform. Of note, remember that BSA prohibits any one-on-one interaction between an adult leader and a Scout – in person, online, through a web conference, over the phone, via text, or in any other form.

Detailed youth protection information is available here. To ensure you are following safety standards for all Scouting activities, please reference the Guide to Safe Scouting.

The BSA’s Social Media Guidelines serve as a complement to our youth protection policies.
