The national BSA database changed from ScoutNet to Akela at the beginning of 2022. With the change the advancement records are solely kept in the Scoutbook program. Units must submit orders for advancement and restricted items generated by the Scoutbook program. Initially you have to print and send the Purchase Order to council so they can pull those items from the shelf for you. They typically need 2-3 weeks of anticipation so that we can place an order in case we do not have all items in stock. You have to bring in the Advancement Report in order to pick up the items. The council can not give you items that are not on the Advancement Report. More will be discussed in the MailChimp email and at Roundtable April 7th at 7pm.
