Annual BSA Registration and Troop Dues

Posted on Oct 23 2016 - 9:54am

It is that time of year when we need to re-register with the national office of BSA all scouts who will be a member of Troop 928 for the calendar year 2017.  Additionally, we will collect our annual dues at this time.

In order for us to know which scouts to re-register, we need each scout to register via the event registration link on the troop website. Registration will close at midnight on Monday, November 7th.  Any scout who has not registered AND paid by this date will not be re-registered with BSA which means effective January 1, 2016, he will not be a member of BSA.

If you have decided to not continue being a member of Troop 928, please let us know so we can update our records.  Please send an email to membership@Troop928.org

Annual dues will remain at $100 and there are 4 ways to pay.
