OA LodgeMaster Users,
Beginning on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, LodgeMaster, in partnership with the BSA, will begin syncing service hours directly from LodgeMaster to the BSA system. The BSA will be retiring the Good Turn for America (GTFA) service hour portal and all service hours for lodges will be entered via LodgeMaster. A nightly sync process will sync service hours from LodgeMaster to the BSA system. No changes are required on the part of the lodge.
Please note: All service hours for service dates in 2020 will be synced retroactively to the BSA system even if they were entered before May 6, 2020. Lodges should not send any 2020 service hours to their council for upload - all 2020 services hours entered in LodgeMaster will be automatically fed to the BSA system and be included in your council’s service hour numbers.
