It’s Personal The importance of tradition and the necessity for innovation.


SCOUTING IS VERY PERSONAL TO ME. Outside of my family and church, the next strongest influence on my life was Scouting. That’s why I couldn’t be more excited at the prospect of working


shoulder-to-shoulder with you as Chief Scout Executive, together serving America’s young people. I work for the Boy Scouts of America because I believe in Scouting—it’s


not the other way around. We have 102 years of strong tradition behind us, and I want those tried-and-true traditions to continue. At the same time, our ability to deliver a quality Scouting experience also depends on new and innovative thinking to effectively guide our young people through the challenging demands of today’s world. Together we can positively affect the lives of young people in a number


of ways: by ensuring that our programs are relevant, appealing, and acces- sible to all youth—including those of all cultures and economic backgrounds. We’re making that happen with Scouting program elements that teach and encourage skill development in science, technology, engineering, and math. We’re also providing the tools and


resources that our volunteers and employ- ees need to accomplish our mission. At the same time, we have a laser focus on promoting, enhancing, and protecting the BSA as a brand. Scouting has a bright future as we


look ahead to our second century, thanks to the hard work you put forth for our Scouts every day. Volunteers are special


people, and I admire the time, talent, and treasure you dedicate to our movement for the benefit of young people. As always, your thoughts are welcome on how we can build on the terrific momentum that Scouting is experiencing right now. Assuming the role of 12th Chief Scout Executive is a great honor that


carries with it great responsibility. I appreciate Bob Mazzuca and the rest of the leadership team for their tireless efforts launching the second century of the BSA. To each of you I pledge, “On my honor, I will do my best” to keep the torch burning bright and the trail clear for the great Scouting adventures that lie ahead.
