National President Dr. Robert M. Gates Delivers Remarks at BSA’s 2016 National Annual Meeting

During the 2016 Boy Scouts of America National Annual Meeting, National President Dr. Robert M. Gates urged the organization to continue to strengthen Scouting for a crucial reason: America needs Scouting now, more than ever before.

As he reflected on his term as president, Dr. Gates lauded BSA’s ability to prepare America’s youth for leadership, and encouraged the organization to seize opportunities for growth in order to bring the values of Scouting, through character development and values-based leadership training, to youth throughout the country.
