Recharter 2013


Basic Steps to Recharter

  • Log-in to the Online Recharter System as a “First Time User” and set up your User Name/Password

  • Load & Update your Unit Roster (Online Stages 1-2)

    • Load your roster from the ScoutNET system or your own Pack/TroopMaster file.

    • Update the roster by “renewing” members who are returning, adding new info, and reviewing adult leaders.

  • Check Roster (Online Stage 3)

    • The system auto-checks the roster again BSA Standards and suggests necessary corrections.

Basic Steps to Recharter

  • Update Fees (Online Stage 4)

    • Final Review of all Unit Members and fee calculations.

  • Submit Roster (Online Stage 5)

    • By clicking “Submit” you are posting it to the Council…NOW you need to print the Renewal Packet and…

  • Gather Signatures

    • The completed Charter Renewal Packet (printed hard copy) needs to be signed by the Unit Leader (CC or CM/SM/NL) and the Charter Org (COR or other designee). “Council Rep” signs upon receipt of completed paperwork.

  • Turn in SIGNED Renewal Packet and check on NOV 7 at Roundtable (7 pm, Christ Presbyterian)

Who can help?

  • Online Tutorial on NSC Website

  • Past Leaders from your Unit

  • Unit Commissioner

  • District Commissioner

  • Council Registrar

  • District Director


  • National Fees have been increased to $24 per year

    • That’s $2 per month…you can’t even belong to NetFlix at that price.

    • Boys’ Life is still just $1 per month, or $12 for an annual subscr.


  • This fee increase is for youth and adult members. It will be the fee structure you see calculated for your Unit when you recharter.

  • All members, even those who you recruited this fall, will need to be Rechartered.

  • Second-year Webelos will also need to Recharterwith their PACK this fall.


  • “But the Webelos will be paying for only 3-4 months of Pack programming before joining a Troop!”

  • Correct! BUT, in order to transition into a Troop BEFORE completing 5th Grade, Webelos MUST have earned the Arrow of Light…which they can only do as a member of a PACK. So…


  • Webelos II should be rechartered with the Pack this fall for the 2014 Scouting Year.

  • As in previous years, when that Webelos earns the AoL and crosses over, it will only cost $1 to transition into a Troop, because he will have current, paid registration through Dec 2014.


  • If your Pack or Troop charges MORE than the National BSA Annual Fee, then it is up to YOU to reconcile this with your associated Unit(s) at the time of transition.


  • Suggested ways of handling Transition:

    • Packs charge Webelos II only the National Fee at the time of recharter; Troops then charge their own standard dues.

    • Packs charge a “Pro-Rated” version of their standard dues; Troops then charge a similar “Pro-rate” to transfer.

    • Packs charge full standard dues; Packs then transfer an agreed upon amount to the Troop to off-set costs.

  • The key to making this smooth is good communication NOW between Packs and Troops.
