Now that the launch of the new “Mining in Society Merit Badge” has been successful, all of us in the mining industry are being encouraged to become involved with the new Boy Scouts of America merit badge, as merit badge counselors. The project was a joint venture between the BSA and SME. A free SME webinar (April 30th) will outline the badge and the process to become a counselor to help promote the program. https://smenet.webex.com/mw0307l/mywebex/default.do?siteurl=smenet&service=6
