FAQ

What is my membership number?
When a volunteer registers with the Boy Scouts of America, they are given a membership number. This number stays with you during your entire Scouting career even if your position changes.

Where do I find this number?
When re-charters are completed, the Committee Chair receives a packet of information regarding your unit. In it are membership cards for each member of the unit. The membership number is located on the bottom of the card directly after 315 90 and before the Chief Scout Executive’s signature.

I have my number now what do I do with it?
If you have created an account already, update your personal profile with your membership number.

What if I have never received this card?
If your Committee Chair does not have this card, you may call or email Lucy Sattoriva at the Scout Office for that information at 406-761-6000 or lucy.sattoriva@scouting.org. Or, fax: 406-761-4480.

Why should I take training?
The safety of our children and leaders is very important to the Boy Scouts of America. Our children deserve to have trained leaders and your experience will be more rewarding when you are trained to understand the program and how to access the aid available.

I have taken my training but do not have a membership number, what do I do with it?
Always keep a copy for your files! Then send your training information to lucy.sattoriva@scouting.org.
