What is Charter Renewal?
Each year, Scouting units (Packs, Troops, and Crews) are required to renew their charters with the Dan Beard Council. A charter is the official agreement between the council and your local chartered organization to provide a program under the auspices of the BSA. The process of renewing a unit’s charter reinforces this agreement year-to-year and provides an opportunity to update registration records and qualify for Quality Unit status. This year, the volunteer commissioner staff has committed to a goal of 100% of correct and complete charter renewal packets being turned in by the on-time deadline of December 13, 2018 — an ambitious goal that can only be met by the assistance of unit volunteers collaborating with their Unit Commissioners to complete the process promptly.
