In our council the blue cards are collected by the council office so that
each district advancement chair has the opportunity to check the card
against the district mb counselor list to the see if the mb counselor is
registered. If the mb counselor is not on the list, the district
advancment chair might then contact the troop for further information or
to request the counselor become registered.
Once it's been determined the counselors are legit, they might return the
blue card to the troop or dispose of them.
Different councils will have have their own policies and procedures.
To my understanding, these policies are local and not national.
