Each unit operates under a charter granted by the Mecklenburg County Council, Boy Scouts of America and must apply annually for renewal.
The charter renewal process provides a systematic opportunity for the unit's leaders to review the accomplishments of the unit during the previous 12-month period.
It is important that the charter review provide an opportunity for the unit leadership to meet to establish plans and actions for the coming year.
Proper use of the charter renewal process will produce positive results to benefit both the unit and the council.
The two biggest hurdles are: updating your unit inventory to better reflect the status of both youth and adults; and, ensuring that both Youth Protection and positional training requirements have been completed.
Please contact your Unit Commissioner to assist with this process. If you do not know the contact information for your Unit Commissioner, then please contact Apache District Commissioner Don Herzhauser for assistance.
