Membership Cards?

Recommended Posts

I generally receive all of my membership cards in a timely fashion from council. District and merit badge counselor cards are mailed directly to me, pack and troop cards are handed over by the unit leaders. Unit cards may not be as timely, actually, but I don't worry about it much. I put all of them in the same pocket of my scout bag.

 

Our council used to have similar issues with outdated rosters and corrections not posting but in the last few years, they have fixed whatever process it was that screwed it up. Makes re-charter and internet advancement much simpler when you don't have to re-invent the list every time.

Have them run a program to fix the other broken councils please. You've reached nirvana.

You can print them off once your Charter clears on my.scouting.org.  They are all there.   You can print them off for all the Adults/Youth in the Unit.  I carry mine around because some stores will give you a discount if you are a Scout.

Success in handing out little pieces of paper doesn't begin to make up for all the other screwed up systems we endure...

I have yet to understand these cards.

I'd rather they save the money to be spent on something more worthwhile.

So what am I supposed to do with them..... take them to the next several meetings until all the boys finally show to get them, so they can throw them in the trash or loose them.....

or should I just cut to the chase and loose them for the boys?......

We've requested council not send them. Told them to save the money and apply to our troop FOS donation.

 

No one uses them. Waste of time and money better spent elsewhere.
