Charter Renewal

Countdown To Charter Deadline...

The BSA issues charters to community organizations to enable them to use the Scouting program under their own leadership as a service to their children, youth, and families. Re-chartering is the process of renewing the charter agreement between the BSA and the organization, and renewing the registration of youth and adult members. Every unit must recharter annually.

Rechartering on time is critical. It is required for Journey to Excellence. It is required for units to continue registration without interruption. It is required to ensure Scouts are registered, critical for receiving rank advancement and other awards, and for insurance coverage.

Thank you for taking the time to update the records of your Scouts with the Twin Rivers Council. Charter Renewal is the annual process when each unit has the opportunity to remove members from your official Scouting roster who are no longer active, to update adult leadership positions and provide annual updates on your unit.

If each unit follows the next three simple rules and the October Back-dater steps, you'll find Internet Charter Renewal is fast, easy, and may only take 15 minutes to complete.
  1. Check the Youth Protection Training dates on your adult members. If their YPT date expires before 1/1/2021, they will not be allowed to remain on your roster and this can cause extended delays with Internet Recharter.
  2. Have new members joining in September, October, November and December use Online Registration or paper applications. Remember you'll need to ACCEPT the new applicants online using Application Manager.
  3. DO NOT USE THE ADD NEW MEMBER feature in the Charter Renewal portal. Let the online registration add them automatically or send paper applications and pro-rated payment to the council office for processing. You can add any new member by simply clicking on the Update Unit Roster button and ScoutNet will upload them automatically to your roster before submittal.
