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 the Council Registrar.
  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 2016. For new members, pay their remaining (pro-rated) 2015 registration plus their full-year 2016 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 for 2016:

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 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.

2015 Youth Protection Training is required. The council requires all registered leaders to be current with their Youth Protection Training by time of recharter.  Failure to complete or renew will result in the leader not being able to reregister.

Training for Cub Scout Direct Contact Leaders is required. All Cub Scout 'Direct Contact Leaders' (Cubmasters and Asst. Cubmasters, Den Leaders and their Asst. Den Leaders (Tiger, Wolf, Bear and Webelos) must have completed Leader Specific Training for their position in order to be registered. This standard helps ensure that leaders have the training and support needed to provide good program to our newest Cub Scout youth members.

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.
