Annual Renewal of Registration

 

For existing youth and adult members of Troop 55, registration is renewed in Oct-Nov of each year by doing the following:

1.  Payment of annual dues.
The dues for youth membership for 2021-2022 are $230 and can be paid at the T-54 Store at this link.  In addition to troop operating expenses, this fee covers the BSA registration fee (which T-54 will pay to BSA).  This fee also covers the registration fee for one parent if that adult wishes to be a registered BSA leader.  If a second parent wants to also be a registered BSA leader, there is an additional $50 fee.

Scholarships:  Parents of Scouts in need of financial assistance may contact either the Troop Committee Chair (Alan Clark) or the Scoutmaster (Eric Lokker) to discuss needs.  More information is contained in the Troop Handbook at this link.

2.  Update BSA Medical Form.
Complete and print the appropriate BSA medical form below and deliver to Courtney Bucy, Troop 54's medical officer, at 4022 Southwestern, Houston 77005.  If insurance or immunizations have changed, also provide that info the troop's medical officer.

3.  Youth Protections Training -- Adults Only
Adult leaders are required to complete YPT prior to becoming a registered leader, and must renew this training every second year.  The troop cannot renew the registration of any leader if that leader is not current on YPT.
