Membership Fee Increase Begins on December 1, 2017

BSA Membership fees will be raised to $33 per year beginning on December 1, 2017.  The increase applies to both scouts and adult leaders and is for the year 2018.  Therefore, when you recharter your unit this fall you need to pay $33 plus $1 insurance for every scout and adult leader.

However, since the increase is for the year 2018 and is not effective until December 1, we will continue to use the current fee of $25/year plus $1 insurance for any scouts or leaders that join in September, October or November. 2017. However, the amount you pay for the new scout/leader is pro-rated because the year ends December 31.

Example:  If a scout or adult leader joins in September–turn in a payment of  $8 plus $1 insurance (total = $9) with the application to cover them until the end of 2017. When you add them to your charter for 2018, you will pay $33 and $1 insurance for them to cover next year regardless if they joined in September, October or November.

The pro-rated fee for scouts joining in October is $6 and $1 insurance.  For November, it is $4 and $1 insurance.

DO NOT HOLD ONTO NEW SCOUT APPLICATIONS JUST BECAUSE WE ARE RECHARTERING OVER THE NEXT 3 MONTHS.  TURN ALL NEW APPLICATIONS AND PRO-RATED FEES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
