Internet Rechartering

Welcome and thank you for using Internet Rechartering from Boy Scouts of America. Internet Rechartering allows you to renew your unit’s charter online and perform the following actions:

  • Select members from your existing charter roster,
  • Promote members from another unit,
  • Add new members,
  • Update member information, and
  • Print a summary of costs associated with the new charter.

Before beginning Internet Rechartering, collect all member information, including new member forms with the appropriate signatures. To complete the process, you must be connected to a printer to print the final report for signature.

About Internet Recharter

About Internet Recharter

Internet Rechartering is a Web-based method for units to renew their charters from any online location such as the office, home, or public library. It’s easy, convenient, and accurate because you enter the information yourself!

A representative of your unit can now complete the paperwork for renewing a charter online. From Internet Rechartering, you can indicate returning members, add new members, and update information for an individual or the chartered organization.

New member applications
For additional adult or youth membership applications: Membership Applications.

To renew a charter online:
  1. Sixty days before your unit’s expiration date, select an adult renewal processor.
  2. The renewal processor attends their district roundtable to receive training and the unit access code.
  3. Sixty to 45 days before the unit’s expiration date, the renewal processor clicks Recharter Now and begins the process.
  4. When the online process is completed, the renewal processor prints the completed charter renewal application.
  5. The unit leader and the Executive Officer (Institution Head) sign the charter renewal application. Bring the application along with the material you received in your recharter packet (such as the Quality Unit application), and all appropriate fees to your district’s charter turn-in meeting.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Use

Training on Internet Rechartering is being set up within each district – visit your district’s homepage for details. Each unit will receive its Charter Renewal Package as usual. This year, the packet includes information for Internet Rechartering, including an access code especially for each unit. The unit selects an adult to complete the online process. This renewal “processor” uses the access code to log onto the Internet Rechartering Web site, selecting whether to start the process with current ScoutNet data, or data from unit-management software. At anytime, the renewal processor can suspend the electronic rechartering process and return later to the last complete screen.

The system lets you enter new members, renew current members and update information for any registrant. When completed, the new unit roster is submitted to ScoutNet and a Unit Charter Renewal Report Package is printed. This package includes the unit charter application. Acquire the signatures for the application, attach applications and fees and take entire package to your district’s “Recharter Turn-in Meeting”. Additionally, anyone who wants to learn more about how Internet Rechartering works can take the interactive Internet Rechartering tutorial below and view the Online Help. Please note that you will need to have Internet Explorer 5.5 or better to use this new Internet Rechartering feature.

*Please be advised that ScoutNet shuts down from 9:00 pm Saturday through 6:00 pm Sunday, every weekend, for routine system maintenance. There are also upgrades performed quarterly that last slightly longer.
