What`s going on at the Recharter? In principle, you tell BSA that the deadline for re-chartering documents submitted to our Council office is November 30, 2020. This gives our Registrar enough time to verify the bid and ensure that it is ready for processing on January 1. A quick and efficient completion depends on your unit`s ability to quickly collect information and fees, collect signatures and activate everything. Units must plan to connect to the internet charter system and perform the following tasks: The name of your executive officer must be indicated in the upper left corner of the first page of your charter renewal. The executive officer is the head of the outreach organization and is sometimes called an institutional director. Examples of executives could be the Rotary President, the Chief Priest/Pastor, the Commander of the American Legion Post, etc. The Executive Director is also responsible for the selection of the Charter Representative (Cor). The CoR is the liaison between the charter organization and the Scout Unit. Instead of signing the executive official, the Charter representative can sign the Charter documents. You can only charter an adult member of your Scout Unit if they are up to date in the juvenile protection training. The training is provided online at my.scouting.org (not familiar with My.Scouting.org? Visit this page to learn more) and must be renewed every two years.
To complete training for the protection of minors, what is a charter? In the BSA, a charter authorizes an organization to operate BSA locator units. It certifies the agreement between a chartered organization – an organization that agrees to use scouting as part of its service to youth – and the Boy Scouts of America who have expectations about the quality of the program to be delivered. The exhibition of a charter is one of the oldest traditions of scouting. If you are reading this, you have probably been asked to re-charter your unit and are full of questions. You can also be a little anxious and ask yourself, “What did I imagine in the world?” because everyone was so relieved when you agreed to do it. Your unit`s new charter will be presented in our Council office until November 30. If you need help, we have commissioners who are available in the Fickett Center the following days and hours to help you, answer questions and verify that your charter of new charter is over: I have problems accessing the online relocation system RELAX. Unit Recharter has gained a reputation for being difficult… But it is not necessary.

The Charter is a formal agreement that allows the organization to use the scouting program to serve youth in their communities. The BSA requires that the Charter be renewed annually so that it can continue to use the program. We call this annual renewal “Chartering.” The following forms are available to assist units in the relocing process. The 2020-2021 Charter Renewal Manual is your guide to the annual rechartation process. With the support of your Unit Commissioner, this book guides your unit step by step in the reincarnation of your unit. In addition to the renewal of the Single Charter, the new charter is one where all young and adult members (leaders) renew their membership in the BSA.
