BeAScout.org and Online Registration
Updating your unit information in BeAScout.org
Updating your BeAScout.org “pin” is simple, and it’s a good way to make sure your information is current. Displaying last year’s Cubmaster or meeting time doesn’t exactly impress new families interested in joining.
We call it a “pin” because when families search BeAScout.org and ask to find Scout units within a certain number of miles around their address, the answers are listed next to a map with what looks like pins marking the location of each unit.
All unit leaders and committee members have access to update your unit’s pin. To update your pin:
- Go to My.Scouting.org
- In the drop-down menu, select your unit, then Organization Manager.
- On the next screen, selection Unit Pin on the left-hand side to see the fields you can update.
- Enter all the updated information for your unit and then click save at the bottom of the screen.
- Note that it may take a few hours, or up to overnight, for the updated information to show up.
