Online Advancement Are you having difficulties with online advancement? It is necessary to log into your myScouting account to navigate either of those sites. You also need to access using a windows based computer via Internet Explorer, this is the only supported browser. This site is not maintained by the Great Alaska Council. This site is wholly the responsibility of the National Council. A couple of hints
- Go to “Tools” (Keystroke command “Alt-T” if you do not see the menu)
- Select “Compatibility View Settings”
- Check “Display all websites in compatibility view”
Online Advancement is available here at these links FYI: During the first couple of months each year the online advancement and tour plan systems do not work until your recharter materials are entered back into the computers. Recharter requires staff review of all electronic materials and usually takes 4-6 weeks to complete. We apologize for the inconvenience, it is a part of the ScoutNet system from BSA National and outside of the control of the local council office.
