The Westchester-Putnam Council is excited to offer Internet Rechartering to your unit. This method for rechartering will make the whole process easier because you’ll be completing the charter renewal information yourself—which ensures that it will be correct—and you can do it from your home or office, anytime that it’s convenient for you.
Here's How It Works
A unit assigned adult volunteer will use the Internet Charter Renewal system to identify returning members, add new members, and update information for an individual or the chartered organization.
This person will need to have access to Microsoft Internet Explorer browser in order for this application to work. They can access the Internet with AOL, but they must open Internet Explorer browser to view the page correctly.
Additionally, a tutorial and on-line help resources are available.
To renew your unit charter on-line:
- Sixty days before your unit's expiration date, select a renewal processor. This should be someone in your unit who is familiar with the members and leaders of your unit to ensure all information provided through the process is correct. This person also needs access to the internet using Microsoft Internet Explorer.
- The renewal processor attends the district training session to learn about Internet Rechartering.
- Your unit charter renewal packet is distributed to the unit leadership as it has been in the past but includes an access code specifically assigned to your unit. It will not include a Charter Renewal Application.
- Thirty to forty-five days before your unit's expiration date, the renewal processor clicks Recharter Now on this webpage and begins the process.
- When the online process is completed, the renewal processor prints the completed charter renewal application.
- The Unit Leader (Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, or Crew Advisor) and the Chartered Organization Representative sign the charter renewal application. The signed application along with any individual applications for new youth members or adult leaders, and materials received in the charter renewal packet, (such as the Quality Unit application), and all appropriate fees, should then be brought to the Council Service Center, or your district's charter turn-in meeting.
