In my district and council counselors fill out an adult app plus a
merit badge counselor information form # 34405 that our council has
reprinted on 3-part chemi-carbon material. The DE signs off on the BSA
app - this IS a district position, the Advancement Chair signs off on
the 34405, and the two forms go to council for entering onto the BSA
roles. The DAC also maintains, or causes to be maintained a roster of
counselors who will council their own unit and other units' boys.
At the end of the district's year - when the district re-registers, NOT
when the individual units re-charter - the DAC sends renewal letters to
every counselor, to be signed and returned, to rebuild the new roster.
We distribute most materials at the round tables. It encourages folks
to attend and saves on postage. District folk get their materials tehre
or ar district committee metings.
Since the units have the most contact with the counselors, I left it up
to them to forward the letters on to the individual counselors, and get
them back to me.
