Internet Rechartering

Units must complete the Charter Renewal process annually to remain active in the Scouting program. This involves checking your roster, verifying position and contact information, adding and deleting members, and paying the National BSA annual registration, charter, and insurance fees.

The BSA’s National Council has developed Internet Rechartering 2.0 — a modern web application that makes renewing your unit’s charter fast, easy, and potentially paper-free!

To get started, download the Garden State Council’s 2023 Charter Renewal Instructions.

National’s Charter Renewal Resources page includes a Recharter Timeline, a User Guide, an instructional video, and answers to many Frequently Asked Questions.

Internet Recharter 2.0 is now part of Internet Advancement. The Charter Organization Representative, Committee Chair, and Unit Leader (Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Venturing Crew Advisor,  Sea Scout Skipper, or Exploring Post Advisor) can log in to Internet Rechartering 2.0 using their my.Scouting.org User ID and Password.

The Internet Rechartering portal opens October 1, 2022. All Charters should be completed and submitted to the Council office by November 15, 2022.
