Scoutbook is the BSA’s online unit management tool and helps Scouts, parents and leaders track advancement and milestone achievement along the way.
Scoutbook will be free to all BSA units starting January 1, 2019 and we want to help your unit prepare to access Scoutbook’s powerful features, which are available on any device. We’re holding a Scoutbook Launch Party for any interested unit leaders (especially unit advancement chairs) on Wednesday, December 12 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM at Messiah College in the Alexander Auditorium (Frey Hall 110).
Doors will open at 6:30 PM with snacks available, with the program beginning at 7 PM. The program will be covering the following:
- Welcome to Scoutbook – an introduction to the new advancement system
- How to Sign Up for a Scoutbook account and sync with Internet Advancement
- Using Scoutbook
- Scoutbook Features and Resources
There is no cost to attend this event, but pre-registration is required. Sign up at https://goo.gl/kCLbxN. One person from your unit can pre-register all adults from your unit attending this event.
