Unit Recharter Timeline


  Unit Membership Inventories (October 1-15) Commissioner and/or District Executive will be contacting you to review your newly recruited membership from the fall campaign. The Unit Membership Inventory is an important step to having a successful recharter and helps identify any unregistered youth. In addition, please provide a copy of your unit’s roster to complete the membership inventory. Look for more details on this in an upcoming email to unit leaders.
    Unit Detailed Assessments (October 1-15) The District Commissioner teams will be contacting our Unit Key 3s to conduct detailed assessments for units that have not had one this year. These will focus on how our units are progressing in the Journey to Excellence and delivering unparalleled experiences for our youth. The assessments will also include a review of the direct contact unit leader training records and Youth Protection training records. Remember that the final Journey to Excellence score cards are due with your charter turn-in.
    Roundtable Your charter renewal packet will be available at October Roundtable. Each district will be hosting a Recharter Workshop the night of October Roundtable to guide you through the charter renewal process.
    Roster Review Please use the month of October to verify all youth & adults planning on renewing for the upcoming calendar year of Scouting. Please contact any youth or adult you haven’t seen at meetings recently to see if they want to continue their participation in Scouting.


  Charters are due! You will be turning in your charters to your commissioner team at your November Roundtable. Many districts are holding early turn-in dates prior to November Roundtable. You are encouraged to take advantage of those opportunities to avoid the crush at Roundtable. All charters must be 100% complete at turn-in or they cannot be accepted. Remember, if a unit’s charter lapses, they cannot provide the Scouting program to their youth – no advancement, no meetings/activities and no one is covered by insurance.
