I sent BSA an email supporting reinstating the Beekeeping Merit Badge. I also stated I had started Beekeeping at the age of 10, had been beekeeping for over 50 years, and had been a registered BSA Merit Badge Councilor for Beekeeping back in the 1960's and 70's and was looking forward to advising more future beekeeping.
Here's a copy of the email I got back:
Great, we are glad to hear from you and about your interest in supporting this merit badge.
I am putting you in contact with several people who will be handling this going forward.
I expect they will be contacting you shortly.
Thank you for your willingness to support this effort,
Boy Scouts of America
The email was addressed to 4 people, of which I was one. I'm wondering if I've inadvertently gotten myself put on the Merit Badge design team?
