In accordance with the 2019 Advancement Manual, The Merit Badge Counselor list IS NOT allowed to be posted on the web site, District or Unit, as there is a lot of Personal Information on the list that is not to be released to the general public.
The District Merit Badge Counselor Sheet is sent to all Units on a monthly basis to the Scoutmaster, Committee Chairs, Advancement Chairs, and the Merit Badge Counselor Point of Contact of each Scout’s BSA Troop. Scouts are to get with their Scoutmaster or designated representative to work out a Merit Badge Counselor for a Scout wanting to work on a Merit Badge.
Contact Hondo Davids if you need more information.
