Two Councils Merge

Posted on 15 March 2012 by ScoutingNewsStaff

Two councils in Michigan and Wisconsin have voted to merge together. The Hiawathaland Council in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and the Bay-Lakes Council in Wisconsin. There will not be a new council created, instead they will keep the Bay-Lakes Council moniker. In November of 2011, nine councils in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan merged into a single Greater Michigan Council. Merging councils increase the resources available to youth, but may have an unforeseen consequences.

What do you think? Have you been through a council merger or split? Comment below.

Update 3/16/2012: Thanks Dan for the comment below. Visit the BSA Area Project to find more information on how Michigan is innovating a new model on the idea of a Council.
