Re-Chartering


Recharter Timeline: 

  • September 22, 2021 – The Internet Rechartering Sandbox environment will be opened for units to begin training on the new system. This sandbox will allow the unit to “test” the recharter process before committing the actions permanently in the new recharter system beginning on October 15, 2021. To access, use the same credentials used to access My.Scouting or ANY of the Scoutbook family of applications.  The sandbox will be available only to the Unit Key 3, Key 3 Delegates, and COR Delegate.  Internet Recharter Sandbox
  • Review and determine cost to renew a member for 2022 Charter Renewal. This includes: BSA registration fees, Council insurance & program fees, Scout Life subscription (optional), and unit fees.
  • Ask every youth and their parent to confirm that they will be renewing their membership with your unit for 2022.
  • Confirm who will hold leadership positions in 2022. Fill vacancies NOW and have them take the necessary trainings, especially Youth Protection Training.
  • Turn in any missing or new youth or adult membership application to Council for processing. Adult applications must be accompanied with their current Youth Protection Training certificate.
    • Tip - keep a copy of the certificate in your unit.
  • October 15, 2021 – Internet Rechartering 2.0 becomes available to begin 2022 renewals.
  • Be sure of your roster for 2022 before choosing to pay online and doing a final submission of your Charter Renewal 
  • Charter Renewals may be paid online or through Aloha Council
    • Aloha Council highly recommends paying at council through Unit Account, Check, or Credit Card
    • Credit Card payments will incur 3% processing fee
  • Once your unit's 2022 Charter Renewal is submitted, any changes needing to be made will require additional paperwork
  • No Refunds will be given for any membership paid for 2022 Charter Renewal
  • Do the following two steps in my.Scouting.org, not Scoutbook:
    • Confirm Membership. In my.Scouting.org, select your unit, go into the Organization Manager and click on the Roster function. This shows your adult and youth members that are registered with the BSA. You can filter the list by adults or youth or export your roster into a printable PDF or a CSV file (spreadsheet). Make sure everyone you think should be on your roster is really on your roster.
    • Confirm your Key 3. Make sure the adults registered as the committee chairperson, unit leader (Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, crew advisor or skipper), and chartered organization representative are correct and are currently active in your unit. Having accurate information about the Key 3 is important. They will be the ones who will have access to the new Internet Rechartering system, along with the Key 3 Delegates.
  • If you have not yet started the Charter Renewal process, set a date to start soon.
  • As a reminder only the Key 3 and Key 3 Delegates will have access to Internet Rechartering 2.0.
  • Complete all components of the Charter Renewal online by December 15, 2021.
