Membership Cards: Worthless or What? It's nearly June and that means council has finally gotten around to sending out the membership cards. Despite updating our unit records quarterly,purging old members and adding new ones, doing the year-end consolidation and reconciliation and making sure our 2015 paperwork was 100% correct, council has given us -- for the tenth year in a row -- the wrong count of membership cards. We have people on there that were dropped two years ago, many of our new scouts/adults missing, and long-standing members that are no where to be seen. A quick counts has us missing over 35 cards and having 27 cards of people we no longer charter. To make things worse, the roster they sent does not match what is on myscouting.org. This confirms yet again an age old feeling: Membership cards are worthless and a significant waste of council time and money. Question: Anyone else experiencing this complete cluster you-know-what? What good are these cards for? Has anyone ever had a need for them that justified their printing, as opposed to having the end-user print them out on their own should they be needed?
