POPULATE YOUR "PIN"
Currently the primary method for new families and interested youth to find out more about Scouting is the BeAScout.org website. Individuals can visit the site, put in their zip code and find out units in their area. When they click on a unit they are given contact information for that unit so they may either call or send an email to find out more. Currently, there are only a few units who have populated their pin with this information. Many of the units when clicked on refer individuals to the council and not to the unit contact information. This is where we need your help. We need to get those pins populated with unit information.
We realize many of you may NOT be the Top Leader or Committee Chairperson of the unit but we need you to check out your pin at www.BeAScout.org
. Put in your zip code and when the units come up click on your unit and see what information is listed. If the information is the council it needs to be changed to the unit information. Now if it's not populated here is the information you need to populate the pin. Please be aware that Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Crew Advisors, along with the Unit Committee Chair and the Chartered Organization Representatives are the only volunteers who have first-time access to set up the BeAScout.org pin. These leaders will then be able to set up a total of 6 individuals in the unit to access the editing features of BeAScout.org.
