Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome and thank you for using Internet Rechartering from Boy Scouts of America. 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 you are a new user, you can consult the help and the tutorial for instructions on using Internet Rechartering.

Annual Rechartering Information

To participate in the Internet Charter Renewal process, each unit will need to designate one volunteer to manage the process. That volunteer will need to set up an account using your units identification code. This code was provided to your unit on your charter renewal envelope

PLEASE REMEMBER – after you have finished the process, you print a signature sheet. This sheet with signatures, along with all youth and adult membership applications for new members added, and your charter renewal fees are due to the Council by December 3.

Information on Re-Chartering from BSA Headquarters - October 2015:

Internet Rechartering and Online Post Renewal updates


The Internet Rechartering and Online Post Renewal applications have been updated with new features.


1. The supported browsers for both applications now include Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer 9, 10, and 11. This enhancement provides much greater choice and flexibility with using the renewal process.

2. The infrastructure of both applications has been enhanced to improve the navigation and user experience.

3. Each application now has an optional Summary, known as Renewal Report E-Z, and councils may accept instead of the long-form Renewal Report Package. The Summary includes the signature lines, fee recap, and key metrics. The Renewal Report E-Z will generally be two pages or three pages in larger units.

4. For Internet Rechartering the position of Venturing Participant (VP) has been added for Crews and Ships.

5. Available for selection in Internet Rechartering are the new Unit Religious Emblems Coordinator and Unit Chaplain positions.

6. Internet Rechartering is found in MyScouting Tools > Legacy Web Tools along with Internet Advancement.

Points to check when re-registering:

  • Please make sure that you enter email addresses for all adult leaders. Please validate any email addresses that may have been submitted in previous years.
  • All adult leaders have been Youth Protection Training within the last year. This is a change - YPT is only good for one year now.  The computer will not register anyone not in compliance.
  • Venture Leaders must do Venturing Youth Protection which is different from Youth Protection for Packs, Troops, and Teams.  If the adult is serving in Venturing and a Pack, Troop, or Team, they must complete both Youth Protection courses.
  • Make sure that the principal unit leader (Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Venture Leader) have all earned the necessary skills courses. If they have not attended these classes, the computer will not register them.
  • Validate all addresses and phone numbers for adult leaders and youth. The Council must pay a return mail piece for any item undeliverable. Help us save money!
  • Remember that Scouts and Leaders only have injury insurance through the BSA for the months in which they are registered in the BSA. If you have new Scouts/Scouters in your unit and have not yet registered them, you are not providing them with this valuable insurance coverage.


Journey to Excellence/Good Turn for America Reporting

One of the qualifications for a Journey to Excellence Award (JTE) is service.  Each level has its own level of how much service must be performed, including one project which must benefit the chartering institution. Most units are performing the service but the qualifying service can only be achieved by logging into the Journey to Excellence/Good Turn for America website and reporting that service. The link for that website is Click on the right column of the screen where it is labeled Journey to Excellence Service Hour Information.

Each unit will need their Unit ID # to log into the service hours website. *Please note that this is the Internet Advancement Unit ID # and NOT the Re-Charter access code. If you do not hav your Internet Advancement Unit ID, contact either your Unit Commissioner or your District Executive who can help you with this information.
