To All Cub Scout Unit Leaders:
Online Advancement Reporting
Please make sure your Pack is updating its Advancement Report
online so that it reflects on each of the Youth Scouting Profiles. That way there is no discrepancies throughout your youths scouting career and is recorded on the national database all throughout his 18th
I know some Packs have an excel sheet or a log of all the Advancements, belt loops, etc. Please just copy the information in the Online Advancement
. It is really easy to use. Just click and enter.
Every unit has a Unit ID Number. If you do not know your Unit ID Number, just send me an email and I will let you know what it is. From there you can log in as a First Time user and create the email and password associated with the Packs Advancement profile. There is only one Unit ID# and one password for each Unit. You can designate one person as the Advancement Chair for the Pack to update the information or you can have multiple people, they will just have to use the same password. Common Problem and Solution
Some units may already have a password and email associated with the Online Advancement
profile for your Pack. But this person was the Advancement Chair for the Pack four years ago. This person has dropped off the face of the earth. Just let me know and I can have our registrar reset the user information. From there, as a first time user, someone from the Pack can register a new email and password for the Pack.
Below is a visual on what accessing the Internet Advancement
will look like.
There are many perks to using the internet advancement. You can see who is actually registered to the unit, both youth and adults, who is Youth Protection Trained, etc. This will be your most accurate record of the unit.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I am here to help you with whatever you need. I want to make sure all the kids throughout the District are getting the best experience possible. I was Cub, Boy, and Eagle Scout out of the Lucky Baldwin District myself. So personally I know that without volunteers as yourself, the kids would get such an awesome program.
Join us at the Roundtable this Wednesday and get more information on the Internet Advancement
Yours in Scouting!
