Internet Advancement 2 Training

Friday, July 19, 2019

There will be a training and information update session on Internet Advancement Version 2 on Wednesday 11 September at 7 PM at Garner United Methodist Church. The training and Q/A session will be led by Gantt Edminston who handles computer programming issues for the Council. Gantt has been very involved with the development and roll out of IA2. There are bugs and some of our units have had issues with IA2. Since all units are required to do advancements electronically all units should send their advancement person or other representative. Gantt will discuss how IA2 works, relationship with Scoutbook, synchronization with other programs, identified issues, how to get help, and planned updates/improvements.
