Hope to see you soon!

So the question came up when trying to recruit a new Commissioner. Where can they apply online? I sent them the invitation through my.scouting “Invitation Manager” and from there it goes to the bit bucket. I also received a new Merit badge Counselor request so again sent an invitation. Is this the expected process for any non-already unit affiliated new/returned scout leaders? Thanks.

Hi Larry, to our knowledge we are not able to submit District and Council level applications at this time however we suggest you check with your local Council Registrar as they would know best.

A sort of round about means for members already in the units but not yet in the district. Introducing a feature of “Invitation manager” Drum roll… invite them. Then after the invite is sent. Scroll to the bottom and send them the application. Quirks but works.
