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!
