Recharters Due 12/15/17

The 2018 charters are ready for pickup at the Midland Office or by Appointment with your District Executive. I have packed a lot of information into the packet to help with this process. If anyone has any questions please have them contact me. The online recharter system will be available November 1, 2017.

An Internet Recharter PowerPoint presentation is available on request.  It was put together by our National Commissioner volunteer team.  This contains all of the screens that a unit will go through, so it is more comprehensive than the presentation previously available.  Please share this information with your unit leaders that might need additional guidance on using the system.

Also, please make sure that all adult leaders are 100% current with Youth Protection Training or that person cannot be rechartered (Per National’s Guidelines). New adult leaders added at recharter will also need a YPT certificate along with their BSA application.

Please remember to sign for your charter paperwork. The packet envelope has a flap on the top that can be filled and is serrated so it can be ripped off. Hopefully, this will help us keep track of the charter paperwork.  If you forget or you cannot get me that flap in time, please send me an email with the following information:

  • Name of who received it
  • Unit type and number
  • Date
  • Their position
  •  Their phone number

All of this information can be sent electronically, via email. If your Pack/Troop Leader would like a digital version of the recharter packet have them send me a request by email so I can send it to them.

I can be reached with the following contact information for any questions or concers:
