DUES!

Dues are due on December 31st for the following year.  If you have not paid your dues yet, please bring a check to the next meeting.

Troop 422 Dues Structure

The dues structure is $100 per Scout due by December 31st.   Discounts are provided for each scout with at least one parent active in troop leadership.  Discounts are provided based on the prior year’s participation.

The discounts are:

 Active Merit Badge Counselor: for three or more badges: $10 discount for all scouts ($90 per scout). 

  •  Active means signed up and available for scouts to work on merit badges.

Active Scoutmaster/Assistant Scout Master:  $20 discount ($80 per scout)

  • Active means all training (online, indoor, outdoor) and ~30% participation in meetings/outings. 

Active Committee Member:  $20 discount ($80 per scout) 

  • Active means Youth Protection and committee challenge complete and active leader role such as Popcorn Kernel, Secretary, etc., or sits on 3 or more Board of Reviews.  Participation in at least 2 committee meetings.

Next year’s discount will be determined by the Committee based on Adults on the recharter list. This means parents must fill out an adult application and take youth protection.  There are a lot of ways to be involved in the troop, and we need your support to stay active and help the boys learn and advance.  A dues discount our way of saying thank you to those who donate their time.

Eagle Scouts- The Troop year following attaining Eagle, Eagle dues drop to 50% of what the Scout’s dues would be if the Scout were not an Eagle.

Secondary Registered Scout- This is when a Scout is Primary Registered with a Venture Crew and only participates with the Troop to advance. At present, the Troop will not charge any fees/dues for this Scout. The Troop will also not pay for any expenses associated with the Scout.

For scouts joining mid-year, dues will be prorated excluding the month the scout joined the troop and going through December. For example, if a scout joins in March, he would be charged for 9 months of dues (Apr.-Dec).

Adults – Registered adult leaders pay $5.

Overdue payment- After the first meeting in January, dues will be offset against the scout account.  If funds are available in a scout account, the account will be automatically debited to cover outstanding dues.  If funds are not available, the scout’s account will reflect the delinquency and the scout will not be permitted to advance in rank until the dues are paid.  The Treasurer will provide a list of all delinquent scout accounts to the Advancement Chair on a monthly basis. 

If you have a question about whether you qualify for a discount, please contact Meghan Starr or Sue Redmond.

Reminder of new advancement requirements

Posted by mastarr on Dec 22 2016 - 8:43am

The following is from the Silver Comet District Eblast regarding the end of the transition period for the new advancement requirements:

A Reminder that all Boy Scouts start using the “new” Boy Scout requirements Jan 1, 2017.

 

<!-- begin content -->

Posted on Dec 17 2016 - 3:54pm

Is there a deadline for using the “old” requirements?

Yes. Dec. 31, 2016, is the last day to sign off on requirements using the old requirements.

So what if a youth is partially done with a rank on Dec. 31, 2016?

He would not need to “start over” and repeat all of the requirements for that rank. He must only complete new requirements and any new elements of requirements.
If the wording of a completed rank requirement has not changed and that requirement was signed off on or prior to Dec. 31, 2016, the approval should be transferred to the corresponding new requirements.

For Tenderfoot through First Class ranks, this may include approvals that were previously listed in a different rank.

When the rank in progress has new requirements (or new elements of requirements) that were not in a previously completed rank under the “old” (2015) requirements, those new requirements or elements will need to be completed in 2017 and beyond.

Will every Scout need to acquire a new handbook in order to have requirements signed off?

No. A Scout may continue to use his existing handbook as a reference and resource. However, he should also have a list of the new requirements for the purpose of sign-offs.

It should be noted that there will be other content updates beyond requirement changes in the new 13th edition of the Boy Scout Handbook , which may make the purchase of a new handbook desirable for many BSA members.
