I have registered online as a new member, now what?

Once the online registration process has been completed a Membership Associate will contact the new member within 5-7 business days to discuss their interests. If the new member is interested in joining a traditional troop, the Membership Associate will work with the service units to locate a troop that best meets their needs.
