The new system appears to have been designed to support new “multiple” registration for units only. That helps with transitions of Cub leaders to Troops, and Troops to Crews. But it doesn’t yet appear to help with Council/District positions, including MBC.
That said, I’m wondering if you “might” be able to register with a District if you have the district application link (which district leaders can find in the invitation tool). However, I’m guessing that won’t work if you’re already registered in a position on the District level, as the Application tool seems to prevent this. While that makes sense for units (where you can only register in one position at a time), that’s not the case for other levels.
All that said, I gather from another thread that there are more features planned to support District registration.
And therein lies the rub… this terminology makes sense to registrars and long-time district volunteers, but no one else. So why do we keep building new technology that only further confuses our volunteers? Maybe we should use the opportunity to rethink the underlying processes (or at the very least, the interface)?
Personally, I would love to see the system evolve to where you register once with the BSA (with all the attendant checks), and perhaps manage your annual membership renewal yourself. Then, a second system would allow you to apply to as many unit/district/etc positions as you like, which would then be reviewed through a separate process on a rolling basis. But I’m a dreamer
