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.

Why re-charter?

• Renews partnership between charter organization and BSA.
• Allows continued registration in district/council activities and rank advancement.
• Makes the unit eligible to qualify for Journey to Excellence Recognition.

NEW: All Adults must have current Youth Protection Training to be renewed on their charter. Any adults on the charter who have expired youth protection will need to submit a certificate of completion with the charter paperwork.  All those that are not completed will be removed from the charter before the process can be completed.
