Dear Scouting Family,
As announced earlier, California AB 506 (“AB 506), now Section 18975 of the CA Business and Professions Code, was passed and signed into law. It will take effect on January 1, 2022 and will support our mission to protect the youth in our program from neglect and abuse.
Collaborating with the other Scout Councils in California, we have created the California Scouting web portal ( www.CaliforniaScouting.org ) that will be your point of reference to help answer your questions about AB 506 and connect you with the resources you will need to fully comply with the law. Please note that the website is subject to change as we learn more and fully set up all its functions…
