Welcome! This forum has a treasure trove of great info – Scouters helping Scouters! Just a heads up, though - all content, information, and opinions shared on this forum are those of the author, not the BSA.
We are out of Blue Ridge Mountains Council. I have two issues I hope someone on here can help with.
I am trying to have our Executive Officer be the COR as well. I’ve been told this can happen but don’t see an opportunity to dual role someone.
I am getting rejected because I don’t have a New Member Coordinator but I was also told that position wasn’t necessary. I have a Committee Chair, a committee member, 2 ASM, 1 SM, 1 COR/EO. I would think that is enough leadership positions paid for and that between all of us, we can work on our new members and bringing them in without paying for a separate position.
My BSA ID is 13029018. I am only affiliated with one troop and help as Roundtable Commissioner so I hope that can narrow down my issues. Thank you in advance for any help.
It’s committee member and new member coordinator OR 2 committee members so you need a committee member or new member coordinator it appears. ASMs aren’t required, so perhaps one of them would be okay as a committee member or new member coordinator. The COR might also be able to be a committee member.
This is a good suggestion. If your COR was planning on attending committee meetings, then they could be a committee member and you wouldn’t have to change your ASM structure. The COR is the only person who can do 2 roles (in your case, 3).
Looking at GregSazonov’s 1st post it appears that the XO may not be a fully registered leader with Adult Leader Application, YPT and Background Check. So that may be part of the problem, If so the XO would need to do the paperwork/training applicable for the Blue Ridge Mountains Council (maybe online or maybe “wet ink” paper or some combination.
Yes the XO can be COR and also a CC or MC if a fully registered leader.
There appears to some variation in the use of abbreviations in this discussion topic. Confused about abbreviations? I am.
I believe in Scouting BSA the title of the non-registered position is Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the head of an organization sponsering Scouting units. In the BSA database this is coded as IH (institution head).
XO is a military abbreviation for executive officer.
In this discussion EO and XO appear to be being used for CEO. In the Language of Scouting there is:
Chief Scout Executive
The top-ranking professional Scouter of the Boy Scouts of America, used when the Scouter is a commissioned BSA professional. This is the only professional title that is routinely capitalized. See also “president and CEO.”
The head of a participating organization that has an Exploring post or club.
president and CEO
The top-ranking professional Scouter of the Boy Scouts of America, used when the Scouter is not a commissioned BSA professional. Capitalize as a title directly before a person’s name: President and CEO Robert Mosby; Robert Mosby, president and CEO. See also “Chief Scout Executive.”
BSA national CEO
BSA national appears to have switch to using Chief Executive Officer instead of Chief Scout Executive for the head of BSA.
IH is Institution head. Source: Registration Guidebook. “institution host” is not a thing.
Roger Mosby started out not as Chief Scout Executive because he was not commissioned professional with required minimum training. As of late May this year, he is Chief Scout Executive and was commissioned by the BSA board. There’s no move away from Chief Scout Executive. He just wasn’t Chief Scout Executive for a few years.
I looked through Scoutbook and My.scouting and I do not have email address for any of my scouts. My scout master has 2 children registered in 2 different units and they are both showing up under his email address.
I was trying to add 1 adult and 2 scouts at first but I got the same message so I removed them all and I still get the messages.
I am going on 2 weeks now and no one seem to be able to help me with this.
I had the same issue. I kept trying and after about 12 times it finally submitted. I don’t know why but it kept saying I had a bad email address for the Charter Org (NOT the COR) which we can’t go in and access to change on our level it’s a council faux pas when they entered it initially. Like I said it finally accepted so either it’s fixed, I’ll be getting phone calls from the registrar or they’ll have to deal with it.
Ok- we found the issue for us. My husband and I are cubmaster and committee chair respectively. We had used the same email in my.scouting as each other. Changed mine to an alternate email, switched browsers (just in case!), refreshed the roster in the recharter application, and it went through. Not positive which (if any) of those was the key- but it worked.
