2016 Unit Rechartering Overview
The Annual Unit Rechartering Process is one of the most vital administrative components of managing a Unit (Troop, Pack, Team, Crew, Ship or Post). The Unit Charter that is renewed each year as part of this process is the formal document that certifies the agreement between a Chartered Partner – an organization that agrees to utilize Scouting as a part of its service to youth and community outreach – and the Boy Scouts of America. Without an up-to-date Charter, as Unit is not part of the Boy Scouts of America and does not have access to Council or National Resources, including insurance.
The 2016 Unit Rechartering process will begin on Wednesday, October 12, 2016. Each Unit Committee Chair and Unit Leader of Record will receive important communications regarding 2016 Unit Rechartering before this time. After having received this information, the Unit’s Renewal Processor, designated by the Unit Committee Chair, will need to download the 2016 Unit Rechartering Instructions, the 2016 Unit Rechartering Required Documents and the appropriate Journey to Excellence forms. Links to these documents can be found below
If you have questions during the 2016 Unit Rechartering Process, please contact the Knox Trail Council Registrar, John Fortini at firstname.lastname@example.org.
