Events were a portion of the ScoutNET strategy to incorporate all council tools that shared common data about persons, organizations, units and BSA structure. They have a history of sparse council usage–so they are going to be retired.
Events Going Forward
We are capitalizing on existing third-party products to avoid National Council investment in a new product. This will allow councils to pick the product of their choice and encourage widespread adoption.
Many local councils already use a variety of third-party event registration products. The plan is to vet the available products and select two to four of these vendors. Then we expect to build interfaces for them to obtain unit and roster info and update member profiles with training, advancement, and event attendance.
