Unit Registration Status
BSA Change in Unit Registration Status - Effective August 1, 2015:
Earlier this year BSA National Office communicated that the 60 day lapse period that follows a unit’s charter expiration date would be eliminated effective December 31, 2014. This policy change was made to align contemporary business practices of real time reporting that is now expected by most councils. After a period of intense listening to council leadership and feedback, it has been determined that the policy change will be delayed until August 1, 2015. This will allow councils, unit leaders, and chartered partners the opportunity to be better prepared for implementation of this policy. While this delay gives us all a little respite, it should not reduce our focus on each unit implementing a disciplined recharter program so we are all fully prepared when the new policy goes into effect in August of next year. Please note:
- Volunteers will retain access to MyScouting, MyScouting tools, Internet Rechartering and Internet Advancement for 30 days after their unit has become expired and become separated.
- A separated unit has 12 months to reregister as a separated-reregistered unit.
- Once a separated unit has been reregistered in National's Scouting system, the unit will be included on membership reports starting in the business month the recharter was posted.
