Internet Unit Rechartering
A representative of each unit can now complete the paperwork for renewing a charter online. From Internet Rechartering, you can indicate returning members, add new members, and update information for an individual or the chartered organization.
New in 2018:
- Any adult leaders who does not have current youth protection will not be eligible for renewal or registration. Youth Protection Training must be verified in the system for anyone who has not completed the new youth protection dated 1 March 2018 or later or is a new adult. A unit will not be able to submit the charter with expired youth protection.
- Paying online with a credit card when you submit the re-charter is an efficient method. (This method will not work for youth members paid for by WellCare or scholarship)
- The Chartering Organization may use a digital signature to sign for the charter.
- If you utilize all these new On-line features, your Unit will not need to submit a paper form to the council office. Unit Re-charter will be complete if it meets all requirements.
