The Boy Scouts of America has introduced a new service to councils that enables units to expedite the paperwork portion of the advancement tracking process over the Internet. As the Internet Advancement moves forward into more Councils, the National Offices will be looking into more compatible programs. (Mac compatibility)

This program is now mandatory for submitting advancement reports!

This advancement service will enable units to process ranks and awards for youth members in packs, troops, teams, crews, ships and posts. Please be aware that the National Council conducts maintenance on the computer systems every Saturday from 9:00pm until Sunday at 6:00am and the advancement system may not be available at those times.
