Important information from Narragansett Council....
Due to the growing cost of delivering the Scouting program and protecting scouters who are part of it, the Boy Scouts of America is implementing, a national membership fee increase for all members as of January 1, 2020. This will affect all recharters and renewals!
We do not know the amount of the increase at this time since this requires National Executive Committee input and approval. The new registration fee will be provided as early as October 23, 2019.
We recognize the timing of this new registration process and fee increase creates challenges as units have already begun collecting fees and documentation for their 2020 registration renewal process. We sincerely apologize and hope you understand that we would not be pursuing this path were it not absolutely necessary to ensure the BSA can continue carrying out its mission to serve youth
