Now that Scoutbook is populated nightly from Scoutnet (or Akela in future) all updating should be done there. However, more of that updating should be done on-line, rather than by submitting paper.
New applications for MBC (pos. 42) must necessarily be done by paper with an Adult application, CBC form, and YPT certification.
Updating information after that should be possible by authorized volunteer(s). Currently the only method of changing address, phone, email, or, in particular, MB subjects is by submitting a Counselor Information form that a paid pro or other volunteer must then read and process.
The only authority (approval) for that Counselor Info form is a District or Counselor volunteer (Counselor Coordinator, MB Dean, or other name). That volunteer should therefore have equal access in my.scouting to make those changes without submitting a piece of paper.
If such authority already exists, I’ve not been able to access it through local council contacts. (I’m a member of the Council Advancement Committee).
To make sure that there is a running record of such transactions, I’d like to see an on-line form that any authorized volunteer could fill out (simulating the Counselor Info form) to update a counselor’s authorized badges and certain other information like change of phone or email.
Where/How should such a request be submitted.
