Spring recruitment is approaching if your unit is in need of assistance/ flyers, please reach out to Karissa. Lastly the

When it comes to unit Friends of Scouting Presentations there is a good chance that some will still be virtual this year. If that is the case, we plan to make it as easy as possible for every family to give. We plan to set up individual fundraising pages for each unit that wants one. This way we can share that page via email, social media, etc. Click HERE to see an example of what a unit page might look like. If you have not turned in an FOS presentation date with your charter please do that as soon as you are able! You can email Steven at

  • Merit Badge Counselors - Please check the accuracy of your listing in Scoutbook. Report any discrepancies to Charlie Hauss, Dean of Merit Badges. We are beginning the process of renewing for another year. There are new protocols that must be followed, Please reach out to Chris for more information. It is better to fix any issues now, than trying to do it during renewal. All Merit Badge applications MUST go through Charlie Hauss before they can be processed by Council.
  • EAGLE Extensions/ Covid Eagle Extensions: Attached is the BAC Time Extension Request Form for use as of Jan 1, 2021 to request ANY extensions. As of Jan 1, Councils have been delegated the authority to approve all extensions up to six months. COVID-19 is but one of what could be many reasons “outside the control of” the Scout which prevented them from completing requirements before their 18th/21st birthday. Every extension should first go through your district advancement chair before coming to Council. 
  • Delivery and implementation of the new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion merit badge has been delayed; no revised schedule has been provided. More information to come.
  • A new Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook has been posted by National. The workbook is significantly different than the previous versions, including that the capability to imbed pictures has been removed. Pictures are now to be included in a separate file. On the Resources - Eagle page on the BAC website, we have a link to the National page which contains the workbook. We purposefully use the link so whenever people seek to get a copy of the workbook, they get the current version issued by National. To download the file, you have to right click the button that says “download the file” and then “save link as”, in order to save the file locally for use. If you click the download the file button, you will get the “Please Wait” page that comes when you try unsuccessfully to download adobe files
  • Reach out to Charlie Hauss if you have any advancement questions. He can be reached
