2020 Fall Re-Chartering Info for Units

Important and New Re-charter Information – Please Read!!!

Minsi Trails Council is making significant changes to our re-chartering process this year.  We are making these changes to offer safer and more convenient re-chartering options for our units while providing abundant support and information to assist leaders through the process.  We are also working to provide a variety of options for re-charter that will accommodate the particular needs of each unit, including “contactless” options.

It is very important that unit leaders understand the new procedures, the timeline, and the options available to them.  Please review the below information and plan to join us for a virtual MTC Re-chartering Roundtable on October 22 at 7:00 PM.  If you are not available that day, the recording will be posted to this site for your review.  Units should especially note that the timeline this year is much earlier than in prior years, so it is critical to undertake the process early!  The new re-charter process is designed to be completed by early December for all Council units.

We intend that our new process will result in a good experience for all of our Scouting units.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns throughout the new process, please contact your unit commissioner, district leadership or MTC professional staff.  Thank you for your attention to this important process.

Details and Key Documents

Key Notes:

  1. As of October 1, 2020 - Charter Packets have been printed.  Included in packets are important documents pertaining to how to re-charter, needed Leader Trainings, and PA Act 15 Clearance expirations. 
    1. Please note:  All those adults needing to renew PA Act 15 clearances should turn them into the Unit Committee Chair after October 1, 2020 for the chartering paperwork submission.  This will streamline the process to one central point for the charter period.  Outside the charter period, PA Act 15 clearances should be submitted to council.
