2023 Texas Southwest Council Recharter Information

Membership in the Boy Scouts of America is for a period of one year, and each year we go through a process to renew the membership of not only the unit (Pack, Troop, Crew or Post) with the Chartered Organization, but also each youth member and adult leader. This process is called rechartering.

Internet Rechartering Key Points

  • An instructional email was sent to all Units’ Key-3 with recharter details:  2023 Recharter Instruction Letter
  • All units should submit recharters online by December 12, 2022 to allow time for Council review and error corrections before office holiday closures.
  • Please click on the links below to access the Internet Rechartering System, User Guide, and instructional videos for assisting you with any questions you may have while processing your Charter Renewal. 
  • Your unit Key-3 or Key-3 delegates can access the system and start the unit recharter. The Key 3 leaders will receive an email for a final digital approval signature. This must be completed in order to finalize the Charter Renewal.
  • Youth Protection training is required for all adults. If an Adult Leader’s YPT is not current, delay in a unit’s ability to post as an active unit will occur. YPT must not expire during the 2023 registration year, or it must be updated prior to recharter.
  • If you have chosen to pay by E-Check, please be aware that an email will be sent to you with instructions for verifying two micro deposits. These micro deposits must be validated by you in order to complete the payment process. Your charter renewal will not complete the submittal process until the micro deposits are confirmed.
