Dates and Maintenance Hours
November 16 - 18 - Friday at 7:00 PM, CST, through Sunday at 6:00 PM, CST
The internet based rechartering process is fast, convenient and easy to use. A representative from each Last Frontier Council unit can go online and access the information to renew the unit's charter agreement for another great year of Delivering the Promise to your youth.
Using the BSA's Internet Rechartering Module, the recharter representative for your pack, troop, team, crew, ship or post will be able to indicate returning members, add new members, and update information for the charter organization and individuals in the unit.
A complete set of instructions to recharter online will accompany your official recharter packet. The unit kit will include the typical materials for rechartering the unit, excluding the printed roster. The unit's roster will now be updated online by the unit and then submitted remotely to Last Frontier Council in a safe and secure manner. The Internet Rechartering process can greatly assist your unit and Last Frontier Council in compiling and maintaining the most accurate and up to date unit information.
The Internet Rechartering system is also designed to integrate Packmaster and Troopmaster software. If your unit currently uses this software you may upload your roster information directly into the Internet Rechartering program.
How to Use Internet Rechartering
Roundtables will feature training on Internet Rechartering.
Each unit in Last Frontier Council selects an adult to serve as the unit's charter renewal processor and this adult must attend the Internet Rechartering training for the unit.
Additionally, anyone in your unit who desires to learn more about how Internet Rechartering works can take the interactive Internet Rechartering online tutorial and view the online help information. The Internet Rechartering Tutorial is available through the link below. Online Help is also available through the link indicated below.
Renewing a Unit Charter Online:
The unit leadership selects a volunteer to serve the unit as the charter renewal processor for the unit. Unit Leaders, this is a great way for a parent to become more active with your unit's committee!
The unit's charter renewal processor who is selected by the leadership will attend roundtable to receive training and to obtain the unit's access code.
The council prepares a unit charter renewal kit for each unit due to reregister, including a letter outlining the use of the new optional Internet Rechartering system, the council’s web site address and the unit’s unique access code.

The district executive visits the head of the chartered organization to renew the Scouting relationship and to discuss the current state of the unit.

60/45 DAYS BEFORE RENEWAL DATE
Units choosing to renew their charters online will visit the local council’s web site, complete the steps through the submission process and print a revised charter renewal application.
To assist in this process, there is a report available to council employees with membership reporting capabilities entitled Commissioner’s Status Report. This report provides the commissioner with the renewal status of each unit, including the date of first login, the current stage of the process completed and date submitted.
45 DAYS BEFORE RENEWAL DATE
The commissioner and unit committee chairman conduct the charter renewal meeting with the unit per the standard charter renewal process. Additional changes may be made to the application. The renewal application with appropriate signatures, applications for new youth and adults, appropriate fees, Quality Unit recognition qualifications and commitments for the coming year are all completed at this meeting.
All forms and fees are then delivered to the council office by the Commissioner, or to the district’s charter renewal turn-in meeting.
FOLLOWING THE RENEWAL MEETING
The council’s registrar receives the charter renewal application,new youth and adult applications, and appropriate fees from the Commissioner, following the charter renewal meeting. If the unit has renewed its charter using the Internet, the registrar selects the unit’s on-hold recharter batch from the PAS program. All changes that were made by the unit, including new members, dropped members and editing of member data are reflected in the on-hold batch. The registrar reviews the recharter information and posts the batch to create the new charter for the unit.
30 DAYS AFTER RENEWAL DATE
The commissioner makes a formal presentation of the new charter and membership certificates at an appropriate gathering of the chartered organization.
