If you have been around Scouting for very long you are aware October signals the most significant tasks during the year. That task is charter renewal. The window is now open and ready for you to log in and complete the process.If you have not yet received your charter renewal packet you need to get in touch with your district commissioner or executive staff member to find out who might have it.
Secondly and hopefully before you log in, PLEASE send in all your applications both youth and adult. Why is this important? Well if you recruited 20 or more new youth to your unit you probably aren’t looking forward to all that data entry. Why not let our office staff complete the data entry for you so when you log in for the first time they are already on your roster.
Once you hit the submit button you will still need to get a few key signatures. The main signature and most elusive always seems to be the charter organization representative (COR). If this process takes you to December to complete the holidays always seem to get in the way of getting a hold of people in a timely manner. Please start contacting your COR now to schedule a meeting to get their signature on the charter renewal paperwork. Remember they need to sign the roster, applications for your new adults, and finally the annual charter agreement.
Every district has an expected turn in date and plan, below are the dates for each district. Please contact your district commissioner or executive staff member if you have any questions.
