Badges… we don’t need no stinking Badges…
Blog     23 Apr 2015 | 7:33 pm
While it is true that we don’t need no stinking badges… We do have a need for patches and lots of them. If you follow me on Facebook, you may have noticed that I am in a patch phase.  Well truth be told, I have been a patch guy for a long time, but until recently, as in this year, I have made the transition from one who acquires patches to one that has a patch collection. What the heck does that mean?  Well, in looking into collecting patches I have been researching some collections and getting focus on the type of...

2015 Guide to Advancement out now; here are 13 of the biggest changes
Blog     23 Apr 2015 | 12:15 pm
The 2015 Guide to Advancement, your official source for administering advancement in all Boy Scouts of America programs, is now available. View or download it by clicking here (PDF). The Guide to Advancement is a critical reference tool for anyone involved in advancement in Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting, Venturing and Sea Scouts. It’s not meant to be read cover to cover. Instead, it’s organized and indexed so you can find answers to your advancement questions quickly. I appreciate that the sometimes-complicated topics covered in the Guide are conveyed in plain English. The Guide to Advancement is updated every two years to reflect changes to programs, requirements and policies. Changes come from a team of national-level professionals and volunteers....

BSA discourages unit-owned credit cards, debit cards
Blog     23 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
The convenience of credit cards — one swipe buys you a Dutch oven, a new tent, a boat — is both their advantage and their downfall. Having a credit card or debit card that belongs to your Scout unit seems handy, but it’s that very convenience that presents potential problems. That’s why the Boy Scouts of America discourages the use of unit-owned credit cards and debit cards. Online event registration and other Web purchases should be paid by a volunteer and reimbursed according to BSA policies. Read more about this guidance from the BSA in my latest Ask the Expert.  The question With more and more councils using online event...
