Since 2008, longtime advertising professional James Neumann has served as the president and CEO of OOS Investments in Chicago. Outside of work, James Neumann gives back to the community by supporting various organizations. He has served as a board member for several groups, including United Way and the Boy Scouts of America.
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) recently released the 13th edition of the Boy Scout Handbook, which has been in continuous publication since 1910. In addition to lessons on outdoor survival and character building, the new edition of the book includes information on STEM education, cyberbullying, and other topics relevant to today’s youth.
To mark the release of the handbook, the BSA launched a new series of online videos demonstrating how scouting helps develop knowledge and skills that can be used throughout a lifetime. Released via social media, the video series, Handbook Hacks, showcases tips on fun outdoor activities like geocaching. The BSA is also encouraging scouts to take part in the effort by creating their own videos highlighting the lessons found in the new edition of the Boy Scout Handbook.
