2020 Unit Recharter

Internet Rechartering

The 2020 recharter season is upon us and the South Georgia Council will be using the online Internet Rechartering module. This method for rechartering makes 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.

The 2020 membership fee for Packs, Troops, Crews and Ships is $60 for youth and $36 for adults.

Exploring unit membership fees are $36 for both youth and adult participants.  $12 for optional Boys’ Life magazine.  

All adults must sign a background check disclosure including youth who have turned 18. 18 and older applicants must take Youth Protection and turn in a certificate or have a current certificate on file.

Access the internet recharter system here: Internet Recharter

Here is how it works:

  • The supported browsers are Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer 9, 10, and 11.  The system is not compatible with a Mac Computer.
  • Each unit will need to identify a renewal processor (this is the person that will be completing the online recharter for your unit).
  • The renewal processor will use the Internet Charter Renewal system to identify returning members, add new members, and verify / update information for all individual; such as, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses.  It is very important that we have updated contact information for each registered leader.

To renew your units charter on-line:

  • 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.
  • Your unit will have an access code specifically assigned to your unit.  Each unit should have received their access code via email.  If you did not receive it, please contact your District Executive or the council office.
  • Each year you always log in as a first time user. After that you will go back in as a returning user.
  • When the on-line process is completed, the renewal processor prints the completed charter renewal application and obtains signatures from the Unit Leader (Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, or Crew Advisor) and the Executive Officer sign the charter renewal application (these may be obtained electronically). Once signed, turn that roster, any new applications, any youth protection training certificates and all monies into your District Executive at your districts Recharter turn-in day listed below.
