In need of a Merit Badge Counselor?

You need to talk to your Scoutmaster!
You need to get a blue card from him to give to the counselor.

If you are interested in becoming a Merit Badge Counselor, please contact your Troop's Leadership or your District's Dean of Merit Badges.

All Applications should be turned into the District Dean of Merit Badges or the District Advancement Chairman.
If they are given to Council they may not make it back to the District and you may not be listed as a counselor.  The upkeep of these list fall upon the District Committee not the Council Committee.
Please remember the buddy system and youth protection must be used when meeting with a counselor.
Never meet alone with a counselor.
Question: I am a scout looking for a Merit Badge Counselor, who do I contact?
Answer: Contact your Troop's or Crew's Scoutmaster or Advancement Chairman.  They will have a list.  (If they do not they need to contact the District's Dean of Merit Badges or the District Advancement Chair.) 
Question: I am a scout and have started working on requirements for a merit badge but don't have a counselor yet.  What should I do?
Answer: You should not be working on merit badge requirements if you do not have a counselor.  A counselor does not have to give you credit for work you have done prior to working with them. 
Question:  Can I hand out the list of Merit Badge Counselors to my Scouts?
Answer:  This list is for unit leadership to use to identify Merit Badge Counselors for certain badges.  This list should not be freely floating around the unit.  Remember this list may have names addresses and phone numbers that should not be out for the public to see.
