UMC Scouting Religious Awards

Posted on Dec 12 2016 - 1:57pm

"From:  UMCOS Religious Relations Committee ... My name is Ernest Perry.  I am the Religious Commissioner for the United Methodist Committee on Scouting (UMCOS) of the North GA Conference for the Atlanta/College Park District and am your Conference Scout resource.  I am a resource for you whenever you have questions about Scouting at the Methodist Conference level.   

I hope you all doing well as we approach Christmas.  I am sure you all are busy as it is that time of year.  But I hope you may be able to carve out a few minutes this week or next to reach out to a church or two in your district to suggest they nominate someone for a Methodist Scout award.

I also serve as a Member-at-Large for the Southern Crescent District for Scouting. I was in attendance at your November District meeting.  The reason I wanted to reach out to you is that this is the time of year when churches nominate individuals, units or their congregation for awards for their outstanding contributions to the Duty-to-God part of scouting.  There are several awards possible (which don't get a lot of publicity).  You can find the awards, criteria and nomination forms at: http://mcos-northga.org/adult-scout-congregational-recognition/ 

If you have anyone in mind who you would like to nominate from your church, please let me know and proceed to fill out the appropriate form. If you have a candidate please submit your nomination(s) by Dec 30, we should be able to get them processed and returned to you by Scout Sunday (Feb 5).  

You will want to email me at perr937@bellsouth.net a copy of your application(s) by then and we’ll be sure to secure the appropriate Conference signatures before forwarding to the GCUMM for review, approval and processing.  

If you would like, we will have someone from the UMCOS (United Methodist Committee on Scouting) attend your Boy Scout Sunday Celebration to present the award(s).  Thanks again for allowing me to introduce myself and suggesting you look at these awards.  I look forward to meeting you personally at some point in the not too distant future.

Service to God through the Scouting Ministry,

Ernest E. Perry

Happy Birthday ...

Are you Expiring? ... Don't Forget ... Youth Protection Must Be Updated Every Two Years.

Posted on Nov 12 2016 - 9:22am

Based on the Training Manager database at https://my.scouting.org/, just about every Pack, Troop and Crew has somebody who will need to get Youth Protection Training updated during this fall's Unit Recharter cycle -- and that means if your YPT will expire by March 1 of next year ... update it now, thanks, you're welcome!  See the District and Unit by Unit list of YPT Expirations here.  To take or re-take Youth Protection Training, access your profile at https://my.scouting.org/, and click the box that has "New to Scouting / Click hear to Take Training" above the Youth Protection Begins with You" logo.  That will load, and give you the Youth Proction Options for you (for most of us in Troops and Packs, it will be plain Youth Protection Training, but for Crews you may need Venturing Youth Protection Training), or in the Upper Left Corner click Menu, My Dashboard, which will take you to My Training.  Do not try to find Youth Protection Training in the "Learn Center".  We don't think it is found there.   

And be sure that your profile shows your BSA Member ID Number and shows you in the Atlanta Area Council (when you Login, click Menu in the upper left, click Legacy Tools in the drop down list, and in the new list click "Manage Member ID" ... if you are not sure what your BSA Member ID Number is, email the Webmaster).

If you try to put a BSA ID Number into your "Manage Member ID" and it won't let you, you probably have two "profiles" in https://my.scouting.org/, and likely the other one has your BSA Number.  If you can't access and use that, see this Announcement about how the National BSA IT Help Desk will merge your profiles if you work with them, and/or see this My.Scouting Troubleshooting Guide for
