91 is used by local Councils to register members of Council Advisory
Boards and parttime volunteers in innercity or rural areas. It is NOT
to be confused (as Kathie noted) with the College Scouter Reserve
position code which has been phased out.
91 was also used by many local Councils to keep Scouts and Scouters on
the books during "Operation Desert Storm" (the Iraqi War, even though
they were physically outside the local Council boundaries.

As I stated before, this "position" is for those Scouters at the
Council level that do not belong to neither a Council-level committee
nor a unit. Merit Badge counsellors are one major subset.

Same here with regards to the above and my previous comments.

However, Kathie, Registrars aren't supposed to let you cross-register
in two positions in two local Councils (for instance, I cannot serve
curcurrently as International Representative in the Shawnee Trails
Council and as Council Exploring Chair in the Middle Tennessee Council).
There are some checks and balances in place to prevent that from happening,
I am told. However, there's NOTHING wrong with you or I or Brother Randy
being dual-registered in two, three or even five units all at the same
time in the SAME local Council.
As Kathie correctly stated, when you do serve as a multiple, you need
to indicate on each and every application that you are serving as a
multiple. Youth members can become multiples (the recent question
about serving in more than one Explorer Post is in my answer quene to
be answered, but I can assure you as a former member of *three
Explorer Posts at the same time*, indeed youth members can become
memebrs of two Troops, a Troop and a Post or Ship or two Ships if they
choose to (and have the time....and YES, I did have a social life,
thank you very much!!!!).
When you serve as a multiple, you wear the shoulder loops of the position
that you have PAID for. None of this "I have to swap out loops for X
position". There are SOME exceptions: Serving as a National officer
is one. Serving on a National or International Jamboree staff or
attending an international Jamboree representing the BSA is another.
Serving as a youth member of a Council or Regional Executive Board
is another. Everything else is a paperwork drill, and it does, as Kathie
noted, require you to place the PAID position you have in the movement
on the application.
Sorry Brother Randy, but you haven't found a loophole in the
registration process *yet*. Keep researching it!
