Dunno - could it be they're *CONSIDERING* (gasp) whether or not it makes
fiscal and logistical sense to merge the parent organization with that other
parallel organization that serves another gender?
This would be a considerable challenge to "think through", as I'm certain
there would not be the need for nearly as many Professional Scouters in such
a combined organization. It's called "right sizing" in the business world,
and all but two National Scouting organizations are "pluralistic" in this
This does not necessarily mean that they run co-ed programs, but rather that
they have pooled resources and property in an effort to serve youth more
efficiently. Many countries have been no other way since the get-go!
Thoughts....apprehensions...let's hear 'em?
