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.
I removed a few inactive scouts from our troop by ending their membership in the Membership tab in Scoutbook. However, these scouts reappeared after our recharter. Is there a FAQ or link someone can post outlining the steps to remove a scout? For instance, do I need to inform council separately, or does ending their membership in Scoutbook eventually feed through to the database that council uses? Or should I inform council directly to end the scouts registration?
Like @JenniferOlinger said, check with recharter paperwork. If they were rechartered (and paid for), council is likely to not drop them until next recharter. It prevents someone from coming back and then having to be readded. There would have to be extenuating circumstance for them to be dropped mid year.
you can re input their “end date” and make sue that at recharter that they are not on the list to be kept on the list. ending their membership in scoutbook does not end thier membership in the unit but removing them at recharter does. removing them at recharter will let council know not to readd them.
The only way for a Scout or Leader to be removed from a my.scouting.org roster prior to recharter is to be transferred to another unit. Since they are paid for a year, the BSA will not remove them from the last unit until their paid term is completed.
