Resources: Internet Rechartering

The Internet Rechartering system will allow a representative of each unit to 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. You will click on the "Register" blue bar.

How to Use...

The Key 3 of each unit will be emailed instructions on recharter in November. Each unit must select an adult to be its renewal processor. Additionally, anyone who wants to learn more about how Internet Rechartering works can take the interactive Internet Rechartering tutorial and view the help. This tutorial is suggested if you have not done online recharter previously.

To Renew a Charter Online

  1. Sixty days before your unit's expiration date, select a renewal processor.

  2. Sixty to 45 days before the unit's expiration date, the renewal processor clicks Recharter Now and begins the process.

  3. When the online process is completed, the renewal processor prints the completed charter renewal application. 

  4. If you approved your recharter online you will not see the signature lines. The unit leader and the chartered organization representative sign the charter renewal application only if you did not approve online.

  5. Bring the renewal application, youth and adult applications and other material you received in your recharter packet, to your district's charter turn-in meeting. All BSA registration fees will also be due at that time.

  6. After your recharter has been processed units can print the charter certificate, roster and membership cards through their my.scouting account. THE COUNCIL CAN NO LONGER DO THIS!
