Venturing award requirements and advancement structure have been reworked. A broad outline of Venturing’s “Direction for the Future” can be found in the Road Map to Venturing report presented at the BSA National Annual Meeting in May of 2013. The new program is scheduled for release in May 2014. It will be the general rule of thumb at that time to let the Veuntures decided if they want to begin, or continue, to work on old awards, or being work on the new awards instead. In any case, December 31, 2014, is the final “earn date” for current awards.
