Mr. Gates is not "taking over" the Boy Scouts of America ["Famous name leads Boy Scouts in 'gay' change"].
As national president, he is a volunteer who chairs a board of directors. The chief executive officer is the top professional position, one currently held by Wayne Brock. In addition, there is the top volunteer field position, known as the national commissioner, which is currently held by Tico Perez. Together, these three comprise what is called the "National Key Three." The "key three" triumvirate is essentially duplicated at every operational level of the BSA, from the national level to the regional, the area, the local council and the districts that comprise the local council.
