Internet Rechartering

The Current Internet Recharter System Will Be Phased Out

To improve systems and increase speed and efficiency in processes while reducing costs, the current Internet Recharter system will be phased out. All units with a charter expire date of December 31, 2021, and beyond will be submitted through a new system located in Internet Advancement 2.0 (  

Our recharters expire on 01/31 of each year. 

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.

For for information, contact the Bay Area Council at 409-744-5206. 


Get Trained On the New Recharter System 

Internet Recharter 2.0 is scheduled to release on October 15th for all units to submit their renewals online.

All Recharter volunteers should sign up for the Recharter Training Webinar to learn about the new system.

Sandbox Live (Test site) - September 22nd,

On September 22, 2021, a Sandbox environment will be opened for units to begin training on the new system. “Test” the recharter process before actually committing the actions permanently in the new recharter system. To access, units will enter their same usernames they would normally use to access or My.Scouting, except a new, generic password will be used to access the sandbox system. That password will be circulated once the sandbox environment is ready.
