Rechartering your unit for 2020
Rechartering your unit can seem pretty complicated, but once you get the hang of it, it's not so bad. Let us walk you through it.
1. Get your Charter Renewal Packet from your District Executive
Not sure who that is? Give us a call at 575-622-3461.
2. Make sure all adult leaders have up to date Youth Protection Training
You can check this through www.my.scouting.org. They can also do the training on this site. Make sure they print a copy of the certificate to go into the paperwork. Renewal applications will not be accepted without this certificate.
2. Go to the Internet Rechartering Website
Select first time user (even if you used internet rechartering last year) and enter the unit's Access Code (found on the front of your Charter Renewal Package)
Select the unit type and enter the four digit unit number (if your unit is listed as less than 4 digits, enter zeros before the unit number).
Create a password as instructed.
Complete the information requested on each screen. You can stop anytime, log off the system, and begin again where you left off by reentering your access code and password.
When you are complete, click the "Submit" button.
3. Print the Unit Charter Renewal Report Package
This includes your charter renewal application, lists of new members, transfers, multiples, and no-fee adults. Get the signatures it is asking for.
Any new leaders or transfers must have applications as well as Youth Protection certificates. A switch to a new position, even if it is in the same unit, will need a new application.
4. Turn it in!
Return the packet to your District Executive or to the office. Turn in all pages. Remember, if it says "Draft Copy" on it, you'll need to print out the finalized report before turning in.
