PCSC is happy to see you back here!
Thank you for choosing to renew for the upcoming crew year! Follow the steps below, and contact VP Accounting to turn in your updated medical forms, dues and donations and continue to be a member of our crew!
Reminder: The crew year lasts from May 11th through May 10th. You will have to renew your membership at the beginning of each crew year regardless of when you initially signed up.
1. Download the BSA medical forms!
Since you have been a member of the crew before, there is no need to fill out the BSA application. Just print out the BSA Medical Forms!
2. Fill out your Medical Forms!
Fill out all information and have your parents sign on the prompted lines.
Don't forget a copy of your insurance card to be stapled to the back!
3. Get a parent or guardian's signature!
Have a parent or guardian sign the forms where prompted. (preferably 2 parents/guardians).
4. Pay the $125 Crew Dues with a Check or on PayPal
($135 if received after Sep 30 of the current crew year; $145 if received after Oct 31 of the current crew year; membership is automatically dropped if not renewed by Nov 30 each crew year.)
The crew dues cover the BSA registration fees and liability insurance, and includes a $50 donation to Piedmont Council, our umbrella org. The crew accepts checks made out to "PCSC". Deliver the check either to the crew's VP Accounting mentor Eric Bentley or Ken Li (see email on Crew Leaders page).
If using PayPal (preferred) to pay dues, send to PCSCOfficial@gmail.com (this will show that the recipient is Emma Broening); state "friends and family" when selecting the payment type so that we receive the full amount; please include a detailed memo with the new member's name, that this is for dues and the crew year that the dues are for.
INCLUDE A NOTE: Indicating name, dues year, FOS donation amount. (eg: Jane Doe, dues '23-'24, FOS donation $50)
5. Donate to our Fundraising Efforts
Help PCSC to raise money for our key partner organizations Rebuilding Together Oakland and Piedmont Council BSA.
As a community service organization, we recognize that service is more than just volunteering, but takes financial support! We ask that every family make annual donations to the two organizations that are central to PCSC's annual program and success. We ask that each family make a suggested $100 donation to RTO.
Visit our Donation page to learn more!
6. Parent reminder
We ask each of you to come to at least two events each semester. Our hope is that this gives you visibility on what we do, and that you might be inspired to come because you like helping our community's youth and the others that we help.
7. Turn in your Forms and Check (unless you used PayPal)!
Contact the crew's VP Accounting (or Crew Advisor Ken Li) to officially turn in your renewals. Keep checking our Facebook group, and sign up for some events! Want to learn about some of our best events? Visit our Program page!
