WELCOME TO THE 2018 RECHARTER SEASON!
The 2018 Recharter season officially begins on October 1, 2018 with the opening of the online recharter system. All Recharter paperwork is due to the Hoosier Trails Council Office by November 30, 2018. In an effort to get the information to you more quickly and have it available to you at your convenience, Hoosier Trails has eliminated the paper recharter envelopes and put everything your unit needs to complete the recharter process here on our website. Recharter unit access codes will be sent to the unit Charter Organization Representatives, the Committee Chairs, and the Unit Leaders via e-mail. Please be sure that we have e-mail addresses on file for your unit to assure prompt communications.
PAPERWORK MUST BE DELIVERED TO THE COUNCIL OFFICE FOR YOUR RECHARTER TO BE CONSIDERED SUBMITTED!!!
Completing only the online portion of the process does not submit your recharter. All paperwork and registration fees should be delivered to the Hoosier Trails Council, BSA, 5625 East State Road 46, Bloomington, IN 47401. As always, please contact either your District Executive, Unit Commissioner, or our Council Registrar, Holly Barton, with any specific rechartering questions. We will be happy to assist you.
If you are having technical problems logging on to My.Scouting.org, accessing Internet Rechartering, or technical issues once in the recharter system, please call the BSA Help Desk for assistance: 972-580-2489. They are available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, (closes earlier the day before a major holiday.) The Council office cannot assist you with retrieving logon usernames or passwords.
