Launch Dates: January 15 Paperwork Goal, and Save the Date: February 1 Party for All

To be ready to launch Scouts BSA troops of girls on February 1, and allow troops to be chartered on that date and the Scouts to be registered, the Atlanta Area Council staff needs to have enough time to review and process the paperwork, and make any corrections that may be needed.  To do that, the Council is asking troops that are ready to submit their paperwork do so by Tuesday, January 15, 2019.

As a bonus, new troops that submit their paperwork by January 15 are guaranteed to paperworkreceive their charter, membership cards, activity patches, and inaugural flag ribbon on Scouts BSA Charter Day, February 1, 2019.  The Atlanta Area Council is also planning a special Charter Day celebration on February 1 – more information on that is below.

To submit your paperwork, you can visit the Volunteer Service Center (which is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.) or contact your District Executive.  If you do not know who your District Executive is or if you need their contact information, please visit: http://www.atlantabsa.org/about-us/contact-us/57554.

If you cannot submit your paperwork by January 15, that’s OK – the Council promises to process the paperwork as quickly as possible.  NOTE: a crush of paperwork will mean … it’s not immediate.  Be courteous, kind.

And paperwork or not, you’re invited to the Launch Party on February 1, 2019.  Looking forward to seeing you on February 1, Silvia de la Cruz, Atlanta Area Council, BSA, Family Scouting Chair.

Here’s the February 1 info, from an email on “New Scouts BSA Troop Charter Celebration” from Silvia de la Cruz, sent by George Snipes:
