CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS FORALL ADULTS RECHARTERING IN 2020
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 will implement periodic criminal background checks on a five-year basis. The first periodic recheck will take place next January (2020).
In preparation for this, the required disclosures and authorization documents are being updated to ensure compliance with current local, state, and federal laws.
The National Service Center will send an email with three separate background check dis-closures and authorization form documents around October 7th to all currently registered adults who have a valid email address listed in their ScoutNET person profile. Those 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.
