You should have received this in your email, but I wanted to be sure to share it here:

Dear NCAC Family Member,

All Parents and Leaders: Updated Youth Protection Training are past due

Posted on Oct 12 2018 - 9:32pm

By October 1, 2018, all new and currently registered leaders will be required to complete the updated Youth Protrection Training (YPT). The enhanced and updated content will allow leaders and councils to comply with all current legal requirements. While this may be inconvenient for some, it reflects the BSA’s commitment to the safety of all youth.
