NEW COUNCIL REGISTRATION SYSTEM
The Miami Valley Council is excited to announce its new online registration system.  Take a minute and visit www.MiamiValleyBSA.org and check out our new calendar and registration system.
Youth Protection Training
All registered leaders are reminded that completion of BSA's Youth Protection Training is required.  The Miami Valley Council's policy states that all leaders be current with Youth Protection Training for the entire charter year.  This means that if you last completed Youth Protection Training prior to January 1, 2018, and plan to recharter with your unit, you will need to complete the training again before you can be rechartered.  Furthermore, it is strongly encouraged that all leaders take time to complete the training annually   Visit My.Scouting.org to access Youth Protection Training online.  Be sure to link your account to your member number in your My.Scouting profile.  If you need help with your member number, please contact the Council Office.  Remember that we all need to do our part to help keep our Scouts safe in our program. Take Youth Protection Training!                                
 
Recruitment Continues
If your unit has not held its annual fall recruitment event OR has new member applications to be turned in, we want to help you.  Please contact your district executive at the Council Office to discuss how we can help. 
Now is also a great time for all of our Scouts and families to think of those they know who are not Scouts and invite them to attend an upcoming meeting or event with them so they can experience first hand the excitement and benefits the Scouting program offers.  

Remember....Friends make Scouting more FUN!   
Rechartering
November and December are the months when all our members must renew their Scouting registration with their unit.  Recharter information was sent out in early October to unit leaders, committee chairs and chartered organization representatives. If your unit did not receive it's information, please contact your district executive.                                
 
Remember that the National registration fees for 2017 are $33 registration fee, $2 Health & Accident protection and a $40 liability coverage fee per unit.
 
Please note:  None of the registration fees collected during registration or rechartering stay local. 100% of these fees are sent to the National Office. The Miami Valley Council relies on the Friends of Scouting campaign to support our local council and camps.
