Now you're able to add and update advancements online!
The National Capital Area Council is very pleased to announce that units can now record youth member advancements from any online location - at home or at the office. You will find this new method to be easy, convenient, and accurate because you enter the information. Units may use this service at any time as long as the unit is an active unit, which means it is no more that two months past its expiration (recharter) date.
Here's How it Works: Internet Advancement makes it easy for unit leadership to record awards, ranks, and merit badges to youth via an online process. This system is separate from Internet Rechartering, but uses a similar concept.
At any time during the year, the "unit advancement processor" from each active unit will be able to record advancements to youth member records. And, they'll also be able to print a unit roster at any time. The roster is the most current information from ScoutNET, and it will include the person ID for each adult and youth member.
Additional Reports Available:
Unit Advancement Summary shows ranks, merit badges, and awards saved in each person record for current members of the unit.
Advancement Report lists each youth member that has new ranks, merit badges, and awards, if any. This is the official Unit Advancement Report to be signed and submitted to the office (MSSC).
Unit Awards Summary lists the number of new ranks, merit badges, and awards by name as a shopping list.
Advancement Update Summary lists any ranks, merit badges, and awards that were already in the member record and were updated online.
The NCAC will provide each unit with a "unit ID", and the unit will assign an adult to record advancements. [Please note that this "unit ID" number is the same number as your unit Good Turn for America Unit ID. If you do not know this unit ID number, contact the NCAC Program Department at 301-530-9360.] Ranks must be recorded based on program identification and in the correct rank and date sequence. Only the Eagle Scout rank cannot be awarded by this process. Awards to be entered will not include nominated awards, such as those for meritorious action, and awards that are controlled by other organizations, even if approved for uniform wear.
Please also review the "Frequently Asked Questions" link which is located on the home page of the National Internet Advancement Website.
If you have any questions or comments, contact your unit commissioner, district advancement chairman, your district executive, or call the Program Department at 301-530-9360 and we'll be glad to help you out.
