Internet Recharter in 2020

The unit charter renewal process is essential to the continued growth of the Boy Scouts of America. Internet Rechartering is an Internet-based application that is indirectly connected to the Council’s ScoutNet membership data and provides the ability for unit leaders to complete the paperwork portion of rechartering from their home (office, etc) over the Internet. Units will love this proven method; it’s easy, convenient, and accurate because you enter the information yourself!

You will find the key resources you need on this webpage including the link to the internet rechartering online process.   We have added a 2021 Charter Renewal Guidebook and many key documents that will help you complete the charter renewal.

Here’s how it works:
  • Each unit Key 3 (Top Unit Leader, Committee Chair, Charter Organization Representative) will receive an Access Code from their Unit Commissioner or District Executive through an email for internet rechartering. 
  • The unit Key 3 will also receive a link to a dedicated online folder to upload all necessary documents.
  • Then, the unit selects an adult (renewal processor) to complete the online process. This renewal processor uses the access code to log onto the internet rechartering website ( First time user each year), selecting to start the process with current ScoutNET data (load roster from Council) or data from unit-management software (such as Troopmaster).  
  • At any time, the renewal processor can suspend the electronic rechartering process and return later to the last completed screen.

All BSA policies are enforced throughout the system, so what you enter is sure to meet all requirements. Remember Youth Protection training is required before a leader can register. Go here to take the online course.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact your District Commissioner or District Executive who will be glad to help you through the process.
