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 have a choice to either download membership information from the BSA´s ScoutNET system or upload from your unit management software (TroopMaster, PackMaster, Rank N´File, etc.)

How to Use...

The October roundtables will feature training on Internet Rechartering. Each unit must select an adult to be its renewal processor; this adult must attend the training. Additionally, anyone who wants to learn more about how Internet Rechartering works can take the interactive Internet Rechartering tutorial and view the help.

To Renew a Charter Online

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

  2. The renewal processor attends the October Round Table to receive training and the unit access code.

  3. Sixty to 45 days before the unit's expiration date (December 31st), the renewal processor clicks Recharter Now and begins the process.

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

  5. The unit leader and the chartered organization representative sign the charter renewal application.

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

If your unit does not wish to renew the charter online, they will be given the opportunity to order a paper renewal application.
