2024 Unit Charter Renewal

Rechartering is now Unit Charter Renewal!

See UPDATES 3/20/24 in the Resource Section for up to date information! Deadline for Unit Renewal moved to March 22. 

The 2024 Unit Charter Renewal is being processed through My.Scouting this year. 

There are some slight changes to how things have been done in the past.  The most significant is that the Unit Charter Renewal and the Individual Membership Registration Renewal are separate processes. 

Registration renewal will be completed by adult members and parents of youth members online. Families will receive email notifications at 45, 30, 15, 7 day intervals beginning on February 15. Youth renewal is dependent on parent/guardian email addresses. Units will have the option to allow some families to pay in an alternate way (to the unit or to the council), but this should be for unique circumstances.

What Units should complete in preparation for Unit Charter Renewal and Membership Renewal:

  • Roster checks for adults- positions for 2024, YPT dates, other training dates, primary unit for renewal purposes for multiples
  • Roster checks for youth- parent relationships, email addresses, updated information as needed.
  • Identify youth and/or adults the unit will pay for or whose families will need to pay in an alternate way
  • Ensure all Key 3 have access to the unit Organization/Position Manager Tool in My.Scouting
  • For OHC Chartered Units, securing a Chartered Organization and completing paperwork in advance of recharter. See your District Executive for support.  

Important Dates:
