BSA has described these program changes in the following blog posts from Scouting Magazine:

Printing out the document will give you all the changes you may need, however it is 59 pages long.  You may be able to print out only those pages that affect your den.

You are encouraged to attend the North Star Roundtable to share your experiences and success stories with your fellow leaders Thursday January 5th, 2017 in the basement of Holy Spirit Church.
