Internet Rechartering 2.0
The Boy Scouts of America offers an online charter renewal process for all units. Recently, this process was moved to improve systems and increase speed and efficiency in processes. Located at https://advancements.scouting.org, the new Internet Recharter system provides a more simplistic approach to the rechartering process and can be completed from start to finish with little paperwork.
Use these resources to help you and your unit's renewal.
