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 new method; it�s easy, convenient, and accurate because you enter the information yourself!
Here�s how it works.
Each unit will receive its charter renewal packet as usual, only now the packet will include information for internet rechartering, including an access code especially for the unit. The unit selects an adult to complete the online process. This renewal processor uses the access code to log onto the internet rechartering website, selecting to start the process with current ScoutNET data or data from unit-management software. 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 completed, the new unit roster is submitted to ScoutNET and a Unit Charter Renewal Report Package is printed. This package includes the unit charter application. Acquire the signatures for the application and send it, the rest of the package, any new youth and adult applications, and all fees to the council.
All BSA policies are enforced throughout the system, so what you enter is sure to meet all requirements.
If you have any questions or comments, contact your District Executive. Your executive will have more information at the December roundtables.
Internet rechartering training will coincide with your District�s recharter packet distribution.
