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 2017:

  1. National membership fees are increasing to $33 per member. Boys' Life remains $12/year
  2. Any adults who do 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 not completed youth protection in the last two years or is a new adult. A unit will not be able to submit the charter with expired youth protection.
  3. You can pay online with a credit card for the recharter as you submit. (This method will not work for youth members paid for by WellCare or scholarship.
  4. You can have the Chartering Organization use a digital signature to sign for the application.
  5. If you complete all these new features, you will not need to submit a paper form to the council office.  Your charter will be complete if it meets all requirements.
