Our Annual Recharter Cycle has opened and below we have important resources for all of our units in support of the recharter process.
Recharter Turn In Dates and Locations
New for 2020!
- Increase in registration fees. In October, the National Council announced there would be an increase in the registration fee for youth and adult participants. For full details visit the Bryan on Scouting Article.
- All registered adults must submit a new background check authorization form.
- Unit Charters are no longer being mailed by the National Council and can be printed off once recharter is complete. See instructions on how to print the unit charter.
- Individual Membership cards are no longer being mailed by the National Council and can be printed off at any point during the year. See instructions on how to print individual membership cards.
If this is your first time using the system, we hope that you will find it user friendly and that the system enhancements will aid you in the smooth completion of this year’s charter.
