Online Registration ... What Your Unit Needs to Know Part 2
Scouting families and prospective Scouting families have asked for it, and now it is here!
Beginning this fall, the traditional paper registration method will not be the only way to join Scouting. 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.
In an effort to assist our units with this new registration tool, we will be sending an email each Thursday which will focus on an individual aspect of the tool. These bite-sized chunks of information should ease the transition our units will be making to utilize this online tool.
The online registration system is designed to make it easy for families to join Scouting. They can find a unit, if they do not already have one in mind, or apply to the unit of their choice. The system walks them through the entire application and payment process. If there is an application or lead to be processed, the unit Key 3 will receive a notification in their My.Scouting inbox once a day letting them know they have actions to take.
Updating My.Scouting Profile
Updating your My.Scouting profile is an essential step to ensuring that you receive the notifications from Invitation Manager or Application Manager showing what actions you have to take.
Go to my.scouting.org and log in. If you do not have an account you can create one by selecting “Create Account” and inputing the required information.
Select Menu to get a drop down menu.
Select My Dashboard in the dropdown menu.
The system defaults to My Training. Click the pancake symbol next to My Training.
Select My Profile from the dropdown menu.
You will see your profile information details. Make sure your address, phone number, email address, and other information is correct. Be sure to save any changes you make.
Step 6. To change your password and/or update security questions, click the pancake symbol and select My Account from the dropdown menu.
Also, it is very important that you are registered in the appropriate position for your unit. If you have recently taken over one of the Key 3 positions, your account should reflect that. If it doesn't, you will need to submit a paper application to one of the Scouting Service Centers to change your position. Work with your district executive if you have any questions.
