2019 Online Charter Renewal Instructions

The Denver Area Council is excited to offer Online Charter Renewal to your unit. We think you'll love this method, because you'll be completing the charter renewal information yourself and you can do it from your home or office, anytime that it's convenient for you. It's a secure, easy-to-use application that's been improved for the 2019 Charter Renewal Process.

Preparing for Charter Renewal

  • Appoint a Unit Charter Coordinator (UCC) to manage the process
  • Get your Charter Renewal Site access code from your COR or Unit Committee Chair
  • Check Member Manager in to confirm all scouts and adults are registered
  • Confirm all adults have current Youth Protection Training (YPT2) good through March 1, 2019
  • Confirm accurate email addresses for each Unit Key 3 member
  • Review the Internet Recharter Instructions and 2019 DAC Charter Renewal Guide
  • Arrange for final signature from Unit Leader and Institution Head (IH)
  • Plan complete turn-in before December 15, 2018 to avoid lapse in membership

Download the 2019 DAC Charter Renewal Guide here. You are also encouraged to attend any of the trainings that your District might be offering. Committee Chairs and Chartered Organization Representatives will be receiving the access codes in October 2018.

Remember: Unit Charter Renewals should be completed by by December 15, 2018
