MyScouting.org - Online Advancement
Pack, Troop and Crew Advancement Chairs:
MyScouting.orgnow has online advancements for your use. Yes, the BSA is working toward a one-stop place for all you electronic scouting needs.
All your youth advancements can be documented onMyScouting.org. Benefits: provides a shopping list of awards, automatically update the official record at the Council office, avoid duplicating work with handwritten advancement records and your current electronic program.
UsingMyScouting.orgfor reporting advancement and awards is not yet required but may be in the near future.
Now that you are interested what do you do? You send an email to me (Mikel Sheltonmikel@smscpatx.com) asking for your unit's advancement code. In return, I'll send you the code plus a PowerPoint presentation that walks you through the login process.
I'm looking forward to the units in Arlington flooding my in box! Kelsey will also have the codes at Roundtable Tuesday night.
Foreshadow: There are other advancement related items that will require the use ofMyScouting.orgin the very near future. So, be a trail blazer and make the transition now!
