This is only my humble opinion!
I tell adults who do not wish to register that they are not covered
under the BSA insurance and that if they are working with youth it
might be a good idea to register as a scouter for $7.00 and be
covered. If this does not work I ask them this question: Would you
like for a person to work with your child that is not trained or that
know one knows anything about?
By filling out the BSA Adult Application the charter unit signs off
on that person and then BSA national enters that persons name into a
national data base that scans for past criminal problems. And from
what I understand several applications are "Red Flagged" every year
across the nation.
Many units pay the $7.00 and then the adults have know reason to fill
out the application.
I look at the registration of adults as a positive part of the BSA.
Look at it as a screening tool, and if a person is not willing to
fill one out, look out!
