www.AtlantaBSA.org: Same Website Name, New Look and Signup Platform

Posted on Mar 20 2019 - 2:41pm

The website of the Atlanta Area Council has the same name and location in the interwebs, at www.AtlantaBSA.org, but it has a new web platform, so a new look, and new way to signup.  Like this site, where flyers and such are posted, they are all gathered at the bottom of a page.  And ... to access information about many (but not all) events on the Calendar at https://www.atlantabsa.org/calendar or the training calendar at https://www.atlantabsa.org/calendar/558/Training, you'll have to have an Account on the "Tentaroo" platform and log in with your own personal Username and Password.  To create an account, go to https://www.atlantabsa.org/admin2/new_account.  Tip:  hate forgetting usernames and passwords?  Go ahead and set your Tentaroo Account up with your https://my.scouting.org/ username and password.  (You don't have to ... but it might help you remember them as you live your online life in Scouting).  P.S.: Have patience with your website workers as we correct links across our page to www.AtlantaBSA.org pages with new extension names!
