2019 Membership Growth Incentive

Our goal, as always, is to increase the number of young men and young women that we serve through our life-changing program.  We do transform our communities and have a powerful positive impact on the future!

To encourage unit leadership to pursue membership growth in all packs and troops this fall we are offering the following incentive:

  1. Existing Packs and Troops that achieve growth of + 5 or more youth members over their December 31, 2018, registered members will be given a voucher for one Pinewood Derby car (Packs) or 1 Merit Badge Pamphlet (Troops) for each registered youth member as of the deadline date of November 15, 2019. 
  2. New Packs or new Troops chartered after February 1, 2019, that achieve 10 or more youth members will be given a voucher for one Pinewood Derby car (Packs) or 1 Merit Badge Pamphlet (Troops) for each registered youth member as of the deadline date of November 15, 2019.
  3. All membership must be turned in, processed, and paid for no later than November 15, 2019, to count towards the incentive. 

For more details and to determine your membership goal speak with your District Executive.

Internet Advancement 2.0

The new tool to quickly input advancement data, Internet Advancement 2.0 (previously known as Scoutbook Lite) is now live.

This free solution replaces the previous Internet Advancement platform, which will be retired (for all programs except Exploring) on June 10, 2019. Internet Advancement 2.0 will feature a clean, new user interface and will be optimized to whatever device you use: desktop, tablet or smartphone. Internet Advancement 2.0 will offer optimized functions for everything found in the current Internet Advancement platform and can be accessed by Unit Key 3 users,  Unit Key 3 delegate users and Unit Advancement Chairs.

End users will access Internet Advancement 2.0 via one of the following locations using their my.Scouting credentials:

•             Scoutbook.scouting.org

•             From the Legacy Tools menu in my.Scouting.org

•             A link in Scoutbook.com

•             From the current Internet Advancement Platform

After initial release, the BSA IT team will continue to add additional features on a regular basis.  Updates and new features will be communicated as they are delivered.
