unit has purchased one of the packages, have your district executive get
a 'starter' diskette with your units information. This will enable you

How to Use Internet Rechartering

visit your district's homepage for details. Each unit will receive its
Charter Renewal Package as usual. This year,the packet includes
information for Internet Rechartering, including an access code
especially for each unit. The unit selects an adult to complete the
online process. This renewal "processor" uses the access code to log
onto the Internet Rechartering Web site, selecting whether to start the
process with current ScoutNet data, or data from unit-management
software. At anytime, the renewal processor can suspend the electronic
rechartering process and return later to the last complete screen.
system lets you enter new members, renew current members and update
information for any registrant. When completed, the new unit roster is
submitted to ScoutNet and a Unit Charter Renewal Report Package is
printed. This package includes the unit charter application. Acquire
the signatures for the application, attach applications and fees and
take entire package to your district's "Recharter Turn-in Meeting".
