Important Change in Dream It, Be It Reporting

Important Change in Dream It, Be It Reporting

SIA’s Board of Directors recently approved a change to the SIA Procedures and the Standards for Working with Youth, such as online training and background checks.

 Previously, clubs were required to track compliance of members involved with projects involving youth AND clubs were required to report compliance to me as the Dream It, Be It Region Coordinator. I was then required to track and report clubs’ compliance to SIA headquarters. 

Now, only the club is required to track compliance of members involved with projects involving youth. There is no longer a requirement to report to SIA headquarters

Club presidents will maintain the important responsibility of ensuring that all members working with youth follow the Standards for Working with Youth. 

It is important to note that compliance with the Standards for Working with Youth is still extremely important. Only the burden of reporting has been lessened. 

Updated documents can be found here:
Procedures (Section B. 7.)
Standards for Working with Youth

Please contact me with any questions regarding this change.

Thank you.
