Scoutmasters, Advancement Coordinators, District and Council Advancement Committee Members, and Others: Very much worth your read. Key points: "Updating requirements means merit badge pamphlets and the Boy Scout Requirements book need to be updated as well. In the past, this process slowed down the update cycle, at times causing delays of a year or more. Not anymore, Berger says. "â€œAs soon as we have new, updated merit badge requirements, weâ€™re going to immediately get them on Scouting.org, as well as in our new interactive digital merit badge pamphlets and on Scoutbook,â€ he says. â€œWeâ€™re not waiting for reprinted pamphlets or requirements books. This should help to get the very best information and resources into the hands of Scouts as quickly as possible.â€" WHAT THAT MEANS: Scoutsource is now the source of record for requirements, not the annual hardcopy of BSA requirements. Counselors and advancement folk will need to check to be sure they are using the latest requirements set.
