Recharter Turn In Dates and Locations

New for 2018! – When you log in for the first time, if you have done the recharter process before, you will notice that there is a new interface for completing the recharter process.  For those familiar with the process, it is very much the same, with a couple of changes highlighted below.  

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.

New Features:

  • New branded look and improved navigation for Online Recharter System
  • Ability to Promote Members within Chartered Organization Family or with unit access code
  • Youth Protection Training will be required for each volunteer on the recharter
  • Electronic Signature Approval Option
  • Electronic Payment Option
  • Elimination of “Parent Coordinator” position (it has been replaced with the “New Member Coordinator” (NM) position.

Features Staying the Same:

  • Access codes distributed with the unit recharter packet
  • First Time Users must register to enter the Internet Rechartering system.  After initial registration, you will enter the system as a Returning User
  • Stages and steps remain the same with one new feature: Electronic Authorization and Payment

Tutorial – With the additional features of electronic signatures and payments, National has provided a Step-by-Step guide for the recharter process with great screenshots.  You can use the guide by downloading it at Internet Recharter Tutorial.
