Trying to get the money collected for BSA fees / insurance.
Cheryl, that really stinks.
Maybe I don't understand, because I've only done GS not BS, but it seems like your issues are more with policy and council problems than with the adults. (Other than the dues.)
The volunteers shouldn't have to jump through hoops to satisfy council, when they've already DONE what they were supposed to do.
Cheryl's council is requiring all leaders to be trained in order to be re-chartered (registered for the next Scout year).
I had some of my training online a long time ago, but had since changed e-mails and couldn't access my password, so I e-mailed my info and waited forever (as long as I possibly could for a reply before I had to have my trainings turned in again to register as Tiger leader this year).
"I'm pretty sure our area wants all leaders to be complete on trainings
by December too... and background checked (which means they want me to
go to whereever someone already has a background check on me... like
church or girlscouts... to get a copy and submit it to them so our pack
doesn't have to pay for the background checks for every leader..."
It's been too long since I looked at one of those adult apps very closely. It's so hard to try to remember everything!
Oh, and I'm not real sure "who" the requirement came from... I'll double check on that... it was just told to us that we need to have it done at one of our committee meetings, so it may have been council, it may have been the charter org, it may have been decided by the cubmaster/committee chair for all leaders without them realizing the adult app has it built in (just like I forgot).
