Your member ID is located on your BSA membership card. You can also contact your local council to obtain this information. Additionally, you can contact your unit’s Internet Advancement processor who can log on to Internet Advancement and obtain your member ID from the unit roster.
You can complete the account creation process in MyScouting without entering your member ID. Enter it at a later date by logging on to MyScouting and clicking MY PROFILE. Click Modify Profile, and then click Modify Membership Information. Enter your member ID, scroll down to the bottom of the form, and click Submit.
Why do I get this message: Council number and member ID number do not match?
You must have a current BSA registration to enter you member ID, and your member id must match the council that is it registered under.
