What is Charter Renewal?

Each year, Scouting units (Packs, Troops, Teams, and Crews) are required to renew their charters with the Northwest Texas Council. A charter is the official agreement between the Council and your local chartered organization to provide a program under the auspices of the Boy Scouts of America. 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 Journey to Excellence 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 1, 2017 — an ambitious goal that can only be met by the assistance of unit volunteers collaborating with their Unit Commissioners to complete the process promptly.
