    Boy Scouts of America Affiliation and Building Use Agreements

    December 16, 2022 / By UNY Communications

    BSA/UMC agreements between troops and local congregations will not be extended past December 31, 2022.

    Troops and local congregations seeking to continue or start a relationship will need to complete a new “BSA Affiliation Agreement” and “Facilities Use & Indemnity Agreement.”  Click here to download the BSA Affiliation Agreement. Click here to download the Facilities Use & Indemnity Agreement.  

    All UNY local congregations seeking to be in relationship with a local troop should use these and only these forms. 

    In most areas, the affiliation agreements and facility use agreements are being implemented and the implementation is going well. There are BSA Councils that are not cooperating in a few Conferences and as the BSA learns of these, they reach out to those Councils to address issues.

    If you are encountering such issues, please contact Jeffrey Hunt of BSA, who oversees the BSA Councils across the United States.
