Change in Unit Registration Status and Membership Reporting

April 30, 2014

A change in the reporting of membership data on national membership reports will begin effective January 1, 2015. Starting then, a unit that has not reregistered by its expiration date will be considered “separated” and immediately dropped from BSA’s membership reporting. The new definition will begin with units that have an effective date of January 1, 2015. This means that units that expire at the end of this year will be included. Volunteers will retain access to MyScouting, MyScouting tools, Internet Rechartering and Internet Advancement for 30 days after their unit has expired and become separated. Remember, Youth Protection Training is REQUIRED for all BSA registered volunteers, and it must be renewed at least every two years. This is important to note, because a unit that submits re-charter paperwork without 100% YPT trained leaders will become separated on January 1, 2015.
