We highly encourage units NOT to pay online through the Internet Recharter system. If internet recharter renewal is paid online, the council will not be able to make changes if it's needed. We encourage units to choose the "Pay at Council" option in order for your District leaders to verify the charter before it is submitted. Changes are easier to make if it is not yet paid for.
Units are still able to submit a paper charter.
If you have questions, please contact your District Executive or District Commissioner.
What Units Can Do Now
To get ready for Unit Recharter and the new system launch in October, you can do a few simple things to make sure you have a Recharter Ready Roster!
- Step 1 – Confirm your membership. In my.Scouting.org, select your unit, go into the Organization Manager and click on the Roster function. This shows your adult and youth members that are registered with the BSA. You can filter the list by Adults or Youth or export your roster into a printable PDF or a CSV file (spreadsheet). Make sure everyone you think should be on your roster is really on your roster!
- Step 2 – Confirm your Key 3. Make sure the adults registered as the Committee Chair, Unit Leader (Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Crew Advisor or Skipper), and Chartered Organization Representative are correct and are currently active in your unit. Having accurate information about the Key 3 is important. We’ll be sending emails about your recharter directly to them and they’re the ones who will have access to the new Internet Rechartering system.
By the way – Do these two steps in my.Scouting.org, not Scoutbook. my.Scouting.org is the actual registration database, while Scoutbook is a separate and not always accurate copy.
