Upcoming Scoutbook / MBC Actions

On Feb 1, 2021, Scoutbook will remove any remaining unregistered merit badge counselors from Scoutbook and remove the ability of units to change which Merit Badges are approved for Merit Badge Counselors. At that point the only MBC positions that will come into Scoutbook will come in via ScoutNET, and their approved merit badge listing will come in via ScoutNET or via a council upload. Advancements the MBCs have previously approved will remain. Councils should make sure their ScoutNET records are current and they are prepared for this action.

This primarily affects councils who have not uploaded their MBC list to Scoutbook.
