Don, that sounds a little to me like a case of not invented here stuff. I
think that if I were in your shoes and was registered with the council as a
merit badge counselor, I would appeal to the council advancement committee.
I think that you would win.
There may also be some miscommunication between the districts and the
council advancement people. In the case of registering with the council, I
would have thought that they would have fanned it down to the different
districts so that they could include the names in the different district
books, but it looks like that did not take place. So it is possible that
someone may have their nose sort of bent out of shape over it.
In my council, in general, the MB registeraions of counselors are fed upward
through the districts first, and then they ask if you would mind if it is
also given to the council so that kids outside the district can also contact
you if they can find a counselor for that merit badge within their own
