The communiqué directed that the National Secretariat should as a matter of urgency issue a policy circular urging all structures and organs of the BBN to encourage and forester harmonious relationships for the overall growth and development of the BBN.

It also directed that the BBN should explore other alternatives to solicitation for funds other than using Boys for BB Week collection, as the practice exposes the Boy and the BBN as an organization to social ridicule

Its directed that the National Council of Patrons and the BBN

Secretariat should jointly set out clear policy and guidelines for the appointment of Patrons at all levels of the BBN with emphasis on spiritual standing of the individual.
