I just had the pleasure of assisting with the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Boy Scouts of America and the ARRL. This is recognition of a long running partnership between these two organizations on the Radio Merit Badge, the Jamboree-on-the-Air, and the ham radio operation at the National Scout Jamboree.

You can see the signing video at the first link below along with several links to more information including the press release. The ARRL also carries information on the signing on their website and a number of supporting documents at the third link below.
