Thank you for taking time to renew your unit charter. Before beginning online charter renewal, please take the following steps:

  1. Select an adult to complete the online process.
  2. Obtain your access code from your District Executive or District Commissioner (Don't know who this is? Find them on the district map). 
  3. Review the Online Rechartering Frequently Asked Questions & complete the Online Charter Renewal Tutorial. (An access code is not needed for the tutorial).
  4. Round up the needed information. Note: Fees calculated during online charter renewal are for 2017. For new members, pay their remaining (pro-rated) 2016 registration plus their full-year 2017 fee.

After completing the above steps you are ready to begin your online renewal using the Internet Charter Renewal Tool: 

NOTICE: During November and December on Saturdays from 6pm to Sunday 6pm the National system may be offline for maintenance and updating. During this time you will be able to work on charters that have already been started, but you will not be able to start new charters. 

Important Notes:

Please do not use the 'E-Z Report' when printing your charter forms.  The E-Z Report works for some councils, but does not include information necessary for our council's charter renewal process. This selection (when you go to print your charter paperwork) is made on the 'congratulations' page after you have submitted your charter renewal information. Please select 'Print Renewal Application' instead of the E-Z Report.

2016 Youth Protection Training is required. Current and new adults will not be registered without first completing Youth Protection training sometime in 2016. The council now requires annual completion of YP training for all registered leaders.

Adult applicatons are required of age 18-20 Venturing and Sea Scout members. Venturing and Sea Scout participants, current and new, who are 18 to 20 years of age must complete an adult application and Youth Protection training in order to be registered. This standard is to ensure that all persons legally considered to be adults are able to meet adult membership requirements.
