BeAScout Tips: Words to Tailor Your Pin and Online Registration

Posted on Jun 18 2024 - 6:41pm

Hello Scout Leaders – Especially Key 3 Leaders and Key 3 Delegates (and those who want to be):  Online Registration is Easier for All.  Most new Youth and Leaders now “register” online – and it is faster and easier than ever.  For one thing, Scouting America will collect any registration fee and new member fee, freeing up the Unit to only collect pack program fees (or “dues”) until charter renewal for the upcoming calendar year.  You can also coordinate with families and other Units to “transfer” registration and set up “multiple” registrations in more than one unit – with no paper required! 

  • This is a great time to update your BeAScout pin and the Online Registration for your unit. 
  • Especially because you probably want to adjust your 2024-25 pack program fees (or “dues”) and messaging to reflect the Scouting America fee increases from April, with the key increases being $85 twelve month (not prorated) Youth Fee (up from $80) and $65 annual Adult Leader fee (up from $60).  
  • You can see the steps at www.atlantabsa.org/updateBeAScoutpin, and find examples for how to complete your “BeAScout.org” profile and tailor automatic emails that generate when someone interacts with BeAScout.org and submits an online Application.
  • Because if you write these automatic emails well, it will help attract new Scouts and families to your unit and make their onboarding easier. 
  • But wait – there’s more!  Unit to Unit transfers, like crossover from a Pack to a Troop, can be done completely online, with no new paper!  See this for more

To help you with these messages, we’ve got some ideas for input by your Unit Key 3 Leaders or Key 3 Delegates (they have the access to do updates) in three spots: 

1)      Unit Pin Blurb.  In My.Scouting == > Organization Manager == > Unit Pin, there is expanded space for “Additional Unit Information” (now 500 characters), and anyone seeing your online “BeAScout.org” profile will see this.  We’ve posted a document with some options at www.atlantabsa.org/updateBeAScoutpin.  Tailor that to fit your Unit. 

2)      Fee Email.  Second, in My.Scouting == > Organization Manager == > Settings, there is an option to click a box called “Include Fees/Fee Explanations”, and enter “Fee Amount”.  That “Fee Amount” needs to be an amount that excludes the Scouting America National fee that will be collected directly in Online Registration.
