Unit Recharters



The Central Florida Council wants to make your unit charter renewal easier for you!

The Central Florida Council wants to make your unit Re-charter easier for you!

Today, you are receiving the first of many tools to help your unit continue providing leadership skills and life training to your youth. This is the annual opportunity for charter organizations to recommit to the youth of our communities. Our commissioner and professional teams have developed a series of training materials, informational presentations, and a workshop for the re-charter process.  Below are some important dates you will need to know.


Youth Protection – Youth Protection Training (YPT) is required of all registered adult volunteers.  The BSA continues to have a comprehensive training program for all Scouting adults.  We’ve had great success getting our 4,000-plus adults in compliance, but there are still some that need the training and we cannot process the unit charter if any of its adults are not current with their YPT.  Copies of each unit YPT Aging Report, identifying those individuals, will be handed out at the October Roundtable along with the unit’s recharter packages.  Also, in order to ensure you recharter is not held up by any post-recharter submittal YPT expirations,  please encourage all Scouters whose YPT certifications expire before 31 March 2024 to re-take their training before 31 December 2023.

Unit membership Inventories – Your Unit Commissioner will be contacting you to review your membership roster.  Unit Membership Inventory is an important step to having a successful recharter and helps identify any unregistered youth.

Roundtable – Your Re-charter packet will be given out at October Roundtable. Each district will be hosting a Recharter Workshop the night of October Roundtable to guide you through the Re-charter process.

Roster Review – Please use the month of October to verify all youth & adults planning on renewing for the 2024 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.

Recharter Payment – When paying your recharter payment please use http://payrecharter.cflscouting.orgplease do not use the BSA Online Recharter System’s payment portal


Re-charters are due! – You will be turning in your recharter agreement, JTE form, and Blue Ribbon Unit Application to your commissioner team at your November Roundtable. Your submittal will be checked online by the Commissioner staff. As a reminder, all charters must be 100% complete, signed-off online by the COR or their designee, and payment made to the council at  (put the payment link here). Remember that when completing the online sign-off, mark the “Payment to Council” selection. Any other selection will delay the processing of your recharter.

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. We hope the recharter tools make it easy for you to successfully complete this important task.
