PETITION TO RE-INSTATE / CONTINUE USAGE OF BELT LOOP ADVANCEMENTS
This petition is respectfully submitted to the National Advancement Committee of the Boy Scouts of America to bring to their attention to a concern from the Membership.
WE, the Volunteers, Members, Families and Friends of the Cub Scouting Movement, as affirmed by our signatures on the opposing pages of this petition, direct the National Advancement Committee to Re-Instate / Continue Usage of the Belt Loop Advancement program for the betterment of all scouting.
It is the feeling of the Membership at large the elimination of the “Belt Loop Advancement Program” has NOT been made in the best interest of the Member-Volunteers of the Cub Scouting organization; specifically, but not limited to; Parents, Guardians, Leaders, former Leaders and the Cub Scouts themselves.
It is our hope the Personnel at the National level will understand the need for the Belt Loop program to not be removed from the advancement programs of the Cub Scouts as these Belt Loops allow and encourage the Cub Scouts to explore new hobbies and develop new skills.
In addition, the belt loops themselves allow an opportunity for the Cub Scouts to display their accomplishments and experiences, and is a direct source of Pride in the accomplishments.
