What is the Charter?
The chartering process is one of the oldest traditions in Scouting. It is the formal document that certifies the agreement between a Chartered Partner – an organization that agrees to utilize Scouting as a part of its service to youth and community outreach – and the Boy Scouts of America, setting expectations for the quality of program to be delivered to the Charter Partner’s youth population.
Why is a Charter Renewed Annually?
- Fosters a formal, timely plan for regular dialogue between the chartered organization and the Council.
- Assures up-to-date member registration, which improves participation in district and council Scouting activities, and accurate rank advancement.
- Makes units eligible to qualify for the annual Journey to Excellence Recognition, goal setting and review process.
Bay Area Council will be conducting a Recharter Training class annually. Please check back for training opportunities. The purpose of the training is to discuss the process of online rechartering. We will go through step by step the proceedure that units should be following. It is essential that at least one person from each unit attend the training. Recharter packets will be available for all units. Question and answer time for membership and advancement issues will happen at the end of the meeting.
