“We learned about this through different channels but never directly from BSA leadership. We’ve had competitors come and go and this is yet another competitor. We’re disappointed in the way BSA handled this,” Lisa Margosian, Chief Customer Officer for Girl Scouts, told BuzzFeed.

The BSA will now allow girls to join its well-known Cub Scout program, which will enable girls to advance to the highest rank of Eagle Scout, according to a statement released Wednesday.

“We’ve enjoyed a strong relationship and partnership with them over the years and we’re disappointed that the BSA didn’t discuss this with us to say we’re having trouble with our membership. This is a direct response to boost their declining membership. At this point we’re just about reminding people that we have an expertise in serving girls that the Boy Scouts just don’t have,” Margosian said.

The BSA’s board of directors voted unanimously to make the historic change to the group that has been for boys only since its founding more than a century ago.
