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. Every unit must recharter annually.
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.
Thank you for taking the time to update the records of your Scouts with the Twin Rivers Council. Rechartering is the annual process when each unit has the opportunity to remove members from your official Scouting roster who are no longer active, to update adult leadership positions and provide annual updates on your unit.
