The BSA Launches Historic ‘Scout Me In’ Campaign Inviting Girls and Boys to Experience Adventures Through a Cub Scout’s Point of View


Circle Ten has announced that the new 2018 BSA Online Training now meets Texas State Requirements and has been approved to replace F2F Training!

Please note: Anyone who has recently taken F2F training and/or has an unexpired F2F YPT card – the card will be accepted at Circle Ten Council Summer Camps and Day/Twilight Camps this year.  Those who have not taken F2F Training or have an expired F2F card will be required to take the Online YPT training thru my.scouting.org and will need to print their certificate to show for validation upon arrival at camp.

Youth Protection Training is Now Required before Accepting Any and All Adult Leaders

Youth Protection Training has been required within 30 days of adult membership acceptance. Effective immediately, it is required before acceptance of a new leader or re-registration of any leader. Paper applications submitted to the Scouting Service Center will need to be accompanied by a paper certificate certifying that Youth Protection Training has been completed.

Digital applications need to be left unapproved by the unit chartered organization representative until Youth Protection Training has been verified. The new applicant should submit a copy of his/her certificate to the unit leader upon completion of the training and will not be officially registered until that training has been verified.

No adult volunteer should be working with your youth
without having taken Youth Protection Training.

Membership Fee Increase

Beginning on December 1, 2017, the membership fee will increase to $33 per registered youth and adult member, which pays for your membership in the Boy Scouts of America. This membership fee is collected by the National Service Center and covers administrative fees, liability insurance, director’s and officer’s insurance, and many other services provided to the Circle Ten Council. The Circle Ten Council does not decide the amount, nor retain any portion, of this national BSA membership fee.The fall recruitment campaign should not be affected by this change. As stated above, it will be effective December 1st and will affect this year’s charter renewals.

Any new unit created this fall will pay the current pro-rated membership for September, October, November, and December, and then pay the $33 to cover 2018.

 

 TRENDING

Mrs. Mary Vorgert with the Hunt County Master Gardeners has reached out and requested that if any of our Life Scouts are in need of ideas for Eagle Scout projects, she has several opportunities within her organization. Mary’s e-mail is vorgert@aol.com, and her phone number is 214-289-8042. This represents another excellent way for our Eagle Scout candidates to complete their project requirements.

National has recently updated their Fiscal Policies and Procedures for BSA Units.  Below is that document to assist you in answering questions that units often ask.  The last item on that document is:

Can my unit credit amounts from fundraising to an individual toward their expenses?
