Council General - Internet Advancement is REQUIRED Posted May. 7, 2014
If you are not currently using Internet Advancement to post your scouts advancements, you need to begin right away. Please send me an email for account set-up instructions, and for your unit id number. Unit account set-up is easy and only takes a few minutes. When you post your advancements through Internet Advancement, you no longer need to send any paperwork to the council office. Since we have the capability to view reports from an administrative side, if any advancement comes into question, we will be able to look at the report. There are several additional reports available to you that you can view and print from Internet Advancement; Unit Roster, Unit Advancement Report, Member Summary, previous Unit Advancment Reports, and you can print temporary membership cards. If you like, come by my office for a quick tutorial or you can schedule a date with me to come to District Roundtable for training.
