Councils and Unit Leaders: About Online Registration
Beginning this fall, the traditional paper registration method will not be the only way to join Scouting. The Boy Scouts of America will offer online registration to select BETA councils to meet the demand for completing the entire registration process for youth members and adult leaders more efficiently.
This is a giant leap forward in allowing prospective members and leaders to register in a way that’s convenient for them, and it creates a more efficient and user-friendly registration experience for units, districts, and councils.
