Deleting and/or Merging Multiple Accounts

Currently I have 2 My.Scouting accounts. Is there a way to merge them or delete one? I have access to both member ID numbers (yes, I have multiple member ID numbers) so I can provide those if needed.

If they are with the same council, your council registrar is the place to start.

They are 2 different councils.

I think you can select your primary MemberID in your profile at my.scouting.org

log into my.scouting.org > click Menu top left > Click Manage Member ID > one of the BSA # will be there marked PRIMARY > then add the other MID (BSA #) - you want to make the one that is your unit registration PRIMARY > Then go to Scoutbook.com and log in using your my.scouting.org credentials

So I have done that, however I still have 2 my.scouting accounts. Is there a way to delete / completely get rid of that second account?

The SUAC does not have tools to delete my.scouting.org accounts. Check with your council to see if they can.

My.Scouting accounts can only be merged by Council if both of them have a primary BSA ID that is from their Council. Hint…you can do that part so they can see the my.scouting accounts

Presently if you have a membership in two councils, you will need to keep both MIDs and switch profiles back and forth as described above based on what you intend to do.

I have solved this issue. I ended up having to call National to receive assistance as the council was limited on their ability when it came to deleting accounts.
