    • Am I looking at this crooked, or are youth basically underwriting the background checks for their merit badge counselors?
    • At any rate, just to put it in perspective...

      $60 per year is still less than the new Disney+ Streaming service.  Just sayin'.  Personally, I still think it's a bargain. My daughter fundraises to cover the Pack expenses of participation. I buy her uniforms used. Summer camp is the only major expense, it's optional, and she is able to fundraise enough to cover that, too. 

      I am lucky that our local council costs are covered by council fundraising - which again we participate in enthusiastically. If they want to start charging $12 a year at some point I still think that's not unreasonable. 

      And I'm seriously considering the Disney+ streaming service too... but if I had to pick one or the other, Scouting all the way.
    • Merit Badge Counselors, Nova Counselors, and Supernova Mentors are all no fee positions. Unit Scouter Reserve and Unit College Scouter Reserve adults do have to pay a fee at the unit level.  Executive Officer is a no fee position at the unit level.
    • Merit Badge counselor registrations have always been no charge. There are no fees to pay out of a unit's budget for a Merit Badge Counselor registration, because they are considered district-level positions, not unit-level positions. Merit Badge Counselor (position code 42 on the application), Unit Scouter Reserve (code 91) and College Scouter Reserve (code 92) are all no-fee registrations.
    • I don't think they've ever been no charge, but many units pay for MB membership fees out of their Troop budget.
