NOTE:  There have been some changes.  Please click the "Tutorial" button to see the updates.

Internet Rechartering is a web-based method for units to renew their charters from any location with internet access. This method is easy, convenient, and accurate because each unit enters the information themselves. Who better than unit leaders to provide the information about their Scouts?

A representative of each unit can now complete the paperwork for renewing their charter online. You can indicate returning members, add new members, and update information for an individual.


Essentials of the plan:

*  It is the plan of the Flint River Council to provide every unit/registrant in the council with accident insurance along with liability insurance we currently provide; we feel this extra coverage is essential and is worth the $1.00 per registrant for peace of mind.

*  The plan also calls for every unit to ba a 100% Boy's Life unit.  Boy's Life is essential to the intellectual growth and retention of all our Scouts.

Flint River Council Recharter Details:

FAMILY EMAIL ADDRESS
Used as a primary means of communication through the e-newsletter and bulletins, it is important that we harvest as many valid email addresses as possible and add them to ScoutNET.

BOYS' LIFE
ALL UNITS IN THE FLINT RIVER COUNCIL WILL BE 100% BOYS' LIFE UNITS.  Scouts that receive Boys' Life magazine stay in Scouting 2.5 years longer than those who don't.  Boys' Life is an easy sell to parents and your Scouts are worth it!  The cost of the magazine is included in the flat registration fee.  Families with 2 or more Scouts will only be asked to purchase one subscription.

YOUTH PROTECTION
All adult leaders MUST show proof of Youth Protection training that is current (YP must be renewed every 2 years - National Policy) by attaching a copy of their current training card or certificate to the recharter paperwork.

UNIT ACCIDENT INSURANCE
It is the plan of the Flint River Council to purchase a Unit Accident Insurance Plan for ALL units in the council.  A portion of the premium for this policy is included in the flat registration fee.

REGISTRATION FEE
$48.00 per youth as well as any adult wishing to purchase Boys' Life Magazine and $35.00 for any other adult leaders

Breakdown of Fees
$34.00 - National Membership Registration Fees
$13.00 - Boys' Life Magazine**
$ 2.00 - Accident Insurance

**There is a small overage in the fee charged.  Once the accident policy is paid for your unit, the overage will be deposited into your unit's account to be used for any other council charges incurred by the unit etc.
