Logging In

Units can directly access the system through Internet Advancement.  Unit Key 3 members (Committee Chair, Chartered Organization Representative, and Key Leader) will automatically have access to the recharter system.  If someone outside of the Unit Key 3 will be completing the recharter process, then the unit will need to assign them as a Unit Key 3 Delegate.

Tutorial – With a brand new system there have been a number of resources produced to help you navigate this process.  Here are links to those resources.

Additional Training Resources:

Recharter Turn In Process – Units will be required to turn a final copy of their recharter and turn it in at a District Recharter Turn In Day.  Units should bring the final copy and any support materials (applications, clearances, payment, etc.) to the event.  A commissioner or district volunteer will review your charter and let you know that day if there are any issues.  

District Recharter Turn In Dates and Times.

If you have any questions about the turn-in process please contact your District Executive or District Commissioner.

Recharter Packet – The items listed below are supplied to each unit electronically.  Additional copies may be downloaded here, and they can be shared with unit personnel working on the recharter.
