2020 Official Recharter Instruction!
The unit charter renewal process is essential to the continued growth of the Boy Scouts of America. Internet Rechartering is an Internet-based application that is indirectly connected to the Council’s ScoutNet membership data and provides the ability for unit leaders to complete the paperwork portion of rechartering from their home (office, etc) over the Internet. Units will love this proven method; it’s easy, convenient, and accurate because you enter the information yourself!
Here’s how it works:
Each unit will receive a booklet with the Access Code from their Unit Commissioner at the District Roundtable for internet rechartering. The unit selects an adult to complete the online process. This renewal processor uses the access code to log onto the internet rechartering website (First time user each year), selecting to start the process with current ScoutNET data (load roster from Council) or data from unit-management software (Troopmaster). At any time, the renewal processor can suspend the electronic rechartering process and return later to the last completed screen.
The system lets you enter new members, renew current members, and update information for any registrant. When the processor has renewed all adult and youth, the system asks for the approving signature of person holding the Charter Rep position, give the Access Code to the CR. They must log in to sign the document for approval of those on the list. Once they have done so, the processor may finalize the charter renewal. (see booklet for process). Submit the updated unit renewal roster electronically to Council, (ScoutNET). No Draft copies, you must print the Full detail Final Charter Renewal Report (no EZ print outs). Attach any new applications & JTE Form, deliver to your District turn in Night, plus a check for all fees or E-check via online, or fees can be paid with a Credit Card only throught the online charter tool. Included a 3% convenience fee.
