BeAScout.org Online Application Testing to Start This Fall
The Membership Impact Department has linked up with the Information Delivery Group to launch the BSA’s first online application process. They offer the opportunity for councils to be part of the beta council testing this fall. Ninety-two councils have agreed to be engaged in this new endeavor.
By participating in the beta testing process, councils will be able to allow prospective Scouting families to submit applications to join online instead of by the traditional paper form.
This is just the first step in the application process. BeAScout Phase 2 will not complete the application process; registration fees will not be collected online.
Training and marketing materials have been developed to assist councils in the promotion of BeAScout, along with resources created to help local council executives and district volunteers train unit leaders on how BeAScout works. Training materials are formatted in PowerPoint along with recorded presentations.
