CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR ALL ADULTS RECHARTERING IN 2021

Since 2003, background checks have been conducted on every new adult when they apply to register, and in 2008 a background check was conducted on all currently registered adults. In 2020, the BSA has implemented periodic criminal background checks on a five-year basis.

The required disclosures and authorization documents have been updated to ensure compliance with current local, state, and federal laws.

These documents are: (1) the Background Check Disclosure and (2) the Additional Disclosures and Background Check Authorization

A new, signed Additional Disclosures & Background Check Authorization form must be collected before any adult’s annual registration is processed.

PLEASE SUBMIT THESE DISCLOSURES WITH THE ANNUAL RECHARTER PAPERWORK FOR ALL ADULTS.
