Need to merge 2 Member IDs

Hello, We have a Parent / Leader that is under 2 member IDs. His parent BSA Member ID (121602528) is associated with son, which is fine. Somehow a new BSA Member ID (130580879) was created for him. The problem is that while his Parent BSA Member ID has his email address corrrect, the new BSA Member ID has the same email address.

We want to keep the 121602528 Member ID and delete the 130580879. Is this even possible? What will happen when we do that?

Further note, that the 130580879 has always showed as pending in our Troop and Pack, as if it has never been registered properly.

Well 130580879 is his registered MID so that is the one to keep - it is all fixed and merged so he can log right in

Donovan, thank you for updating that. How do I merge information form all my BSA Member IDs? E.g. I have 130580879 (Utah), 121602528 (Virginia), and 110152462 (Delaware). I have training information from Virginia that I would like to carry over in Utah.

@DavidCook9 log into > 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 and log in using your credentials - seems like training merges in an hour or so - sometimes you have to make the one with training Primary - NOTE: Primary MID logs you into THAT MIDs scoutbook account though - so 130580879 is what you want primary

This is great. I just merged them and now I can see my old Training from Virginia now.

@DavidCook9 Try making your Virginia BSA member number primary for 24 hours, and then your training should be merged onto your Utah (primary) BSA member number.

@JenniferOlinger it is much faster than 24 hours and Old MID does not seem to need to be primary
