What is Membership Renewal?


Membership Renewal and Recharter are two (2) separate processes that over time have been combined into one process. Moving forward these two processes will be separated. 

Every year, from October through December, all units (packs, troops, crews, & posts) renew their affiliation with Scouting. This process allows units to update their adult and youth members' information, pay registration fees, and renew the Scout Life magazine subscriptions. In an effort to provide uninterrupted programs to your Scouts, please work on and complete your unit renewal in a timely manner. Membership renewal needs to be complete by the end of December. The signatures required for the membership renewal are to acknowledge the membership roster for the new year. 

There will no longer be a Charter Agreement included in the
 online renewal process. The signatures on the Charter Agreement will be handled with a separate process in the late spring or summer months. 

For questions concerning membership renewal, please contact your Unit Commissioner, District Commissioner or District Executive.



Steps to Success:

DO:

  • Contact your District Executive before the end of October if your unit Institution Head or Charter Representative is changing.
  • Ensure the Council office has correct emails on file for the Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Committee Chair, and Charter Representative.
  • Keep an attendance roster and be aware of any youth that have not been attending.
  • Strive to have minimal or no loss in youth membership by reaching out to and reengaging any youth members that have not been attending recently. 
  • Identify adults who are registered in multiple units.
  • Submit the Unit Charter Renewal online by December 10, 2021.

DO NOT:
  • DO NOT Pay Online, the national system does not account for money on file at the Council office or Scout Life tax. Changes cannot be made to your membership rost if you have paid online.
  • DO NOT Wait until December 31, the registrar prepares the rosters ahead of time and makes every attempt to catch errors.
