Recharter Training Workshop
October 28, 2018
Every year, all units (packs, troops, crews, ships) are required to renew their affiliation with Scouting. 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.
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.
The Internet Recharter (IR) site will officially open up on November 1, 2018, but there's a lot units can be working on right now to make the recharter process go smooth.
1. Send a representative from the unit to one of the district recharter training sessions:
As in previous years, if this is not your first time doing recharter, then you will get your code after you learn about the changes for this year (20min). Afterwards, you will be dismissed and we will continue training for the first-timers.
2. Prepare and plan ahead to get recharter done early, as this time of the year is typically very busy. It takes time to gather information and collect fees and signatures.
- Review recharter resources
- Contact your unit commissioner or district commissioner for assistance. Norma Gonzales will be the turn-in point for recharters.

Life to Eagle Scout
After a Boy Scout has completed the requirements for any rank, they appear before a board of review. Its purpose is to determine the quality of their experience and decide whether he has fulfilled the requirements for the rank.
Eagle Scout Boards of Review: At least one district or council representative must serve as a member of an Eagle Scout board of review. Find out more about how to request a district representative for an Eagle Scout Board of Review on our advancement page.
Eagle Scout Service Project: While a Life Scout, plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or your community. The project must benefit an organization other than Boy Scouting. A project proposal must be approved by the organization benefiting from the effort, your unit leader and unit committee, and the council or district before you start.
