How to Be Prepared for the Launch of Scouts BSA on February 1st, 2019

Posted on Dec 22 2018 - 11:01pm

In a little over a month, the Boy Scout program will become Scouts BSA, and we will welcome Girl Troops into our Silver Comet family. In addition, the Order of the Arrow will begin conducting elections in Crews. There are lots of great resources to help units manage these exciting additions to the Scouting program. Even if you're not specifically involved with a new Girl Troop or the OA, you'll want to review the latest information so that you'll be able to confidently and correctly answer any questions that might be asked by the families in your unit.

Internet Advancement to be replaced by Scoutbook Lite

Posted on May 12 2018 - 8:16pm

BSA is planning to replace Internet Advancement with Scoutbook Lite (SBL) in mid - 2018.
Though the pay version of Scoutbook can be synchronized to interface with Scoutbook Lite which is a free application, third party programs such as Packmaster, Troopmaster, etc. will not initially do so.

Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Unit Committee Chairs and Advancement Coordinators, please familiarize yourselves with the resources below so you will be ready to transition your Unit to Scoutbook Lite advancement reporting when BSA initiates the transition and retires Internet Advancement.

The actual transition date will be widely publicized when it is announced.
