Due to popular demand, from our youth members in particular, Scouts Victoria has issued membership cards ‘Scout ID 2017/18’ to all registered uniformed members including all youth members, Leaders, and Fellowship as well as Adult Helpers (not office bearers).
All these uniformed members, if registered by the Group Leader before or on July 23 within the membership system, should have received their card in the initial bulk distribution late-August to mid-September 2017. Members registered after this date will begin receiving their Scout ID cards shortly.
The bulk distribution of the cards was sent by households with the August edition of Australian Scout Magazine. For example, if you’re the only Scout member who lives at your address, you will just receive your card and a copy of Australian Scout. Or if there are multiple Scout members living at the one address eg family members or friends, you will receive yours together in the one package with one copy of the magazine.
The details printed on the cards (name, membership number and registration year) are based on each membership record on the Extranet system as supplied originally by Group Leaders.
See the Scout ID FAQs page if there is an issue with the card received.
