Report to the Nation

Each year, as part of the BSA’s congressional charter, the Boy Scouts of America® is required to present a report to the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. This report covers who the BSA is as an organization, the programs and initiatives it supports, and its major accomplishments and contributions over the past year.

This report is a presentation of who we are and what we do as a community—from the organization as a whole down to each individual unit. Thus, we each own a little piece of it.

To bring that important point home, each year a delegation of six to 10 Scouts is selected to travel to Washington, D.C., to deliver the report to our nation’s leaders. The delegation represents all areas of Scouting and every region of the country.
