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 have reviewed a number of existing third-party products that focus on event management. Many local councils already use a variety of third-party event registration tools.
Our plan is to vet the available online tools and decide whether to invest in one of these tools or build our own online event management solution. Then we expect to build interfaces that will obtain unit and roster info and update member profiles with training, advancement, and event attendance.
