2024 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:  2024 Recharter Instruction Letter
  • All units should submit recharters online and make payment to the Council office by December 1, 2023 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 2024 registration year, or it must be updated prior to recharter.
  • Payment must be made to the Council office in order to receive the Scout Life benefit for all youth.
