National Council Organizational Changes

Posted on 16 July 2008 by Dan

The National Council of the Boy Scouts of America commissioned a study of itself by McKinsey & Company. Part of this study was a thorough review of the organizational structure which resulted in the creation of a new framework for the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

In a letter to the Council Scout Executives, Robert J. Mazzuca, Chief Scout Executive, stated “throughout this process, our vision has been to focus on building the BSA’s brand and increase the capacity of our councils to be successful.”

On July 9th, the National Council eliminated 42 positions which did not effectively meet the core objectives of the BSA’s new organizational structure.

The new changes to the organizational structure are aimed to better meet the needs of the local councils, and in turn, the youth and families across America. Scout Executives attending the National Leadership Training Conference in August will have an opportunity to review the changes in detail at the Scout Executives meeting.

Mazzuca went on to challenge the Scout Executives, “As we continue this exciting journey, please join me in forgetting “business as usual,” and in focusing our skills and passion for Scouting toward embracing the challenges that lay ahead. I believe our collective dedication and commitment, along with our new structure, will launch Scouting into a new era of growth over the next 100 years.”
