Council General - YPT Annual vs Biannual Posted Jan. 6, 2016
Some of our members are questioning the new policy change requiring adult members to complete Youth Protection Training annually when the training is good for two years. The Western Region announced the policy change back in April 2015 and sent us follow-up in November 2015 that will help our members understand the importance of taking YPT annually.

Council General - BSA Adult Applications Posted Apr. 29, 2016
Did you know that less than 2% of BSA Adult Applications can be approved for membership the day they are received? Yes, 98% of BSA adult applications received end up in a CANNOT POST file. The most common mistakes are; no Youth Protection Training; no Scouting Position listed; no unit type and/or number; no unit signatures; missing page 4; no applicant initials; questions 1-6 not answered. We would like to ask our units to please review all applications for incomplete fields and verify youth protection training has been completed before sending them to the council. Thank you!
