--well, the prerequisites are:
1. current registration for 2 years (the past two) in an position actively
working with the boys. As I have stated, the only exceptions are the
commissioner staff. They do not need active position with the boys, but
STILL must have the 2 years current registration as a commissioner.
2. No - the course is no longer considered a retirement award course. The
course is back to what it was originally written to be, a course to BETTER
PREPARE the leaders to work with the boys. If you have no such
responsiblity, you would 1) not meet the requirements and 2) have NO way to
work a ticket!
I feel VERY strongly, as do many across our nation, that those who SHOULD
be taking B.S. Woodbadge are those who after 2 years in our program, have
caught the "scout spirit" and want to better serve those kids.
