National Annual Meeting

National Annual Meeting

Conference Information

All meal functions and optional activities can be selected on the registration form. All attendees must be registered and have a name badge to participate in conference events (meals, exhibits, sessions).  Exceptions are family members or guests of Silver Antelope and/or Silver Buffalo award recipients who only plan to attend the meal including the award presentation. These special guests need to purchase a ticket to the respective dinner, but do not need to pay a registration fee.

Food Menus

Menus have been developed to satisfy most attendees. Anyone requiring a special meal due to medical or religious restrictions should indicate it during the online registration process. A special Dietary Restriction Card will be included in your packet to advise the waiter of your need for a special meal.  The BSA and the Orlando World Center Marriott will make every effort to accommodate your needs.


Attire for most events is business casual. The Silver Antelope and Silver Buffalo Recognition Dinners allow you to choose your preference of business dress, evening attire or BSA Dress Uniform.

National Annual Meeting participant name badges are needed for entry into meetings, meals, events, and exhibits associated with the National Annual Meeting. You can pick up your registration packet at the onsite BSA Registration desk during registration hours.

NOTE:  Photo ID is required to pick up your registration packet. You cannot pick up anyone else’s packet.


Your itinerary for the meeting can be found on your registration confirmation email.  It will also be available on the National Annual Meeting Mobile APP called Scout Events.

NAM Mobile APP

In alignment with our environmentally conscious Scouting values, the National Annual Meeting will be (mostly) paperless. Many of the materials participants received in paper packets at the onsite registration desk in previous years will be available via the mobile app.

To access your personal schedule, general information about the hotel, and electronic copies of the agenda and materials for your meetings and events, please be sure to bring your smartphone, tablet, or laptop computer.

In mid to late April, all registered participants will receive an email message with instructions for downloading the National Annual Meeting APP – Scout Events.

Prefer paper? Before you depart home, access the web version of the APP from your desktop or laptop computer. Then download and print any of the meeting materials you prefer to carry with you. We will be unable to print them onsite.
