New this year, as part of the recharter process, BSA National Council has mandated that a background check on every registered adult be performed. Failure to submit the paperwork for each registered adult will result in a denial to process the entire recharter package for the unit.
New this year, you can use all or part of the unit's popcorn sales commission to pay for the Unit Charter Renewal fee.
The Boy Scouts of America requires Youth Protection training (YPT) for all volunteers. The purpose of this policy is to increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist in Scouting. If a volunteer's YPT record is not current at the time of charter renewal, the volunteer will not be re-registered.
The Journey to Execellence Scorecards are used to measure your unit's performance throughout the Scouting year. The unit appropriate scorecard for the current year may be included as part of your recharter package or submitted separately before the end of the calendar year.
The online charter renewal system should include national registration and council insurance fees as appropriate for the individuals registration.

The Council Program Fee Worksheet must be included as part of your recharter package that you submit after completing the online recharter process.
Packs are encouraged to be active when school is out for the summer, by doing one activity per month in June, July, and August, or during other school vacations if your pack is in a year-round school. This award is part of the requirements for Journey to Excellence.
The Friends of Scouting (FOS) Campaign kicks off at the beginning of the year, and continues through March. Use the form below to schedule your presentation, including the form as part of your recharter package that you submit after completing the online recharter process.

If a member is not currently registered [typically someone that you have to Add during the online recharter process], complete the appropriate application and include it with as part of your recharter package that you submit after completing the online recharter process.
