HOW DO I UPDATE MY CONTACT INFORMATION?

You can update your contact information by logging into or creating an account at my.scouting.org. You will need your BSA member ID (the registration number from your local council) to create an account. If you don’t have it, please contact your local council.

WHAT IS A MEMBER ID NUMBER?

Every registered BSA member has an ID number, which is printed on the bottom of his or her registration card. If you have been associated with multiple councils, you will likely have a member ID for each council. To find your primary member ID number, log into my.scouting.org and select “Menu” under “Manage Member ID.”
