Rechartering Opens October 15th – Are You Ready?
October 15 – December 1, 2023
For those familiar with the recharter process there are only a few small changes for the 2024 Recharter. Recharter information is included in the links to help guide you through the process. Further questions or issues can be directed to Council Registrar Julie Brewer at email@example.com or to your District Executive.
First change for 2024, any new members on your roster who have registered after August 1, 2023, will show on the roster as Pre-Paid $0.00 due for recharter fees. This is due to the new National 12-month registration cycle which starts on the first day of the month they register.
The second change is Twin Valley Council is now offering individual payment plan options through a system called Give Smart. Youth fees of $120 can be paid in three monthly payments of $40 each and adult fees of $76 can be paid in two monthly payments of $38 each.
The last change is a Merit Badge Counselor (MBC) fee of $25 for those NOT registered in a paid position with a unit. Those whose primary registration and payments are through the unit will be multipled as a MBC and won’t pay the MBC fee of $25. This piece is what makes rechartering on time so important. If a unit is not rechartered on time leaders who are multipled as a MBC will be dropped off the roster and then be charged a fee when re-registering as a MBC. If recharters are completed on time, MBC can also be renewed on time and not have a dropped gap time for renewal. Currently registered MBC’s will receive a renewal email later this month.
