The World Scout Foundation Board held the first of its 2020 biannual meetings on 17 April, under the leadership of our Chairman, Hector Robledo Cervantes, and our Honorary Chairman, HM The King of Sweden, with record participation from Board members.

The meeting was an historic first: the first official virtual meeting of the full Board, which traditionally meets on the occasion of key BP Fellowship events. The new way of of working was deemed a great success, with Sub-Committee meetings, informal discussions, a facilitated Questions and Answers session and online voting taking place prior to the main meeting.

Priorities on the agenda included an update from the Investment Committee, the election of the Chairman Elect, Kent Clayburn (profile), the report of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and a discussion on enhanced joint fundraising efforts for World Scouting.
