Annual Unit Recharter Process — Now through Oct 15th

Units should now be working on their Charter Renewal! Complete your Unit Recharter in 3 EASY STEPS!

Each Committee Chair and Unit Leader (Cubmaster/Scoutmaster/Skipper/Advisor) should be receiving a weekly email each Friday that includes 1.) a report that details all Youth and Adults who paid that week  2.) Your Unit Membership Charter Report.

Each Committee Chair or Unit Leader should have received your Annual Charter Packet in hardcopy (for Packs, this was included in your Fall Recruiting Materials). You will use these reports for your Charter Process, so if you’re not receiving them, contact our District Exec, Jim Bollback [email protected]
