News & Notes
Membership Registration Fee
Coronado Area Council Scouters,
We want to make you aware that the National Council, Boy Scouts of America, is considering a fee increase for 2020. This fee increase will be effective beginning this recharter process. The amount of the increase will not be known until November 1, 2019.
We recognize the timing on this likely fee increase creates challenges as units have already begun collecting fees for their 2020 registration renewal process. The good news is we are in the middle of our popcorn sale and you can adjust your sales goal to help offset this increase!
Thank you for your patience while we work through this together. We will let you know the official amount as soon as we find out.
Finally, we want to ensure any youth wanting to join Scouting can regardless of financial barriers. Please know registration assistance is available upon request both from Coronado Area Council and the National Council.
Thank you again for your commitment in delivering a life changing program to the youth we serve.
The 2020 National Order of the Arrow Conference will be held at Michigan State University from August 3-8, 2020, in East Lansing, MI. MSU is home to three past NOACs including 2006, 2012, and the 2015 centennial conference. Registration is now open!
All Arrowmen who are registered members of the Boy Scouts of America and have their council’s approval, are eligible to participate in the 2020 NOAC.
Conference fees are $545 for both youth and adults. There will be an additional travel fee on adult participants. That fee will be announced as soon as travel costs are confirmed.
A $100.00 deposit is required at the time of registration. On or before February 25th 2020 a payment of $225.00 for youth and $225.00 plus travel deposit is due. On May 20th 2020 the remaining balance is due for both youth and adults. There will also be another travel payment option that will be announced at a later date.
There will be fundraising events for the Youth Arrowmen to participate in to cover their travel cost.
