BSA Online Registration is Coming
Submitted by Council Commissioner, Jack Terrill
You have asked for it, for years. Starting this June, The Spirit of Adventure Council will be using a new online registration procedure that the BSA is introducing to Councils nationwide.
Instead of handing new applicants a paper application, parents will be provided a website URL or bar code unique to your unit, which will ask them to complete a Request for Information. If approved, the unit will email out a welcome packet and BSA membership card. The same process will occur for adult applications with council approval. Currently, the online registration system can only collect the BSA Registration fee and the Boy’s Life subscription fee, so council and unit fees will be separate.
Paper applications will still be accepted. The Unit Key 3s (Chartered Organization Representative, Committee Chair & Unit leaders) will need to be trained. Unit Key 3s should watch for additional emails that will provide specific information they need to do to prepare for the new system.
Additional information can be found on the BSA National website or by contacting me.
