Error Code during Registration Checkout


I’m trying to register myself as an Adult Leader for my local Venture Crew. However, when I attempt to check out, I get an error message, “Error Code: -12, Message: Person not found by member ID”.

Any idea what’s causing this? My local chapter doesn’t know what the error means.

Thanks for any help!!


Not 100% sure if this is the solution. But are you sure you have the right BSA ID. It won’t be able to find you in the system (which it needs to do to link the purchase to your account) if you put it in wrong. And again, it could be a good-ol-fashioned BSA I.T. mess up. (They are pretty common :slight_smile:)
