Internet Rechartering

Internet Rechartering allows you to renew your unit's charter online and perform the following actions:

  • Select members from your existing charter roster,
  • Promote members from another unit,
  • Add new members,
  • Update member information, and
  • Print a summary of costs associated with the new charter.

Before beginning Internet Rechartering, collect all member information, including new member forms with the appropriate signatures. To complete the process, you must be connected to a printer to print the final report for signature, if requested.

If you are a new user, please consult the 
October 2019 (Click Here) presentation for instructions on using Internet Rechartering, Version 9, for units that will expire on December 31, 2019.

Charter & Membership Cards:

In an effort to streamline basic operations and put tools in the hands of volunteers, the BSA has decided to make “self-service” as many membership processes as possible. This change will allow unit Key 3 to print charter certificates and membership cards in a timelier manner.
