Don’t Leave Home Without Them!
To save time and extra trips to the bank make sure you have done the following BEFORE opening your account:
- Choose a Bank – (consult your Association Service Team for bank suggestions)
- Decide who will be on the account - Required is a minimum of 2 signatures –one of the Troop Leaders and the other a member of the Association Service Team (Treasurer or CAV).
- Request a letter from Council on Council letterhead: Once you have the names of the signers, the bank you wish to open the account in, and your Troop number, go to our website’s Forms/Documents Library and click on Bank Account Request Web Form. Or, contact your volunteerism or membership staff person to assist you.
- Once you receive the letter (which also indicates the Council’s ID number) you can go to the bank and get signature cards for your new account.
IMPORTANT: Remember to indicate that all bank statements be mailed to the Leader’s address - not the Council’s address.
