Recharter is the annual process where each Unit formally confirms their membership roster, pays dues, and reaffirms their relationship with their Charter Organization. Since the fall of 2021 this process is almost entirely done electronically over a web portal, including signatures and payments. Paper checks can still be used but are discouraged.
Issues with YPT & AB506 reports? YPT/AB506 FAQs
First, try to connect the Scout and counselor in Scoutbook. If that is successful, the counselor is registered and qualified. If unsuccessful, go to the counselor’s home council and search for their Advancement Administrators. Most will have an email address for either the Council Advancement Committee or Professional Advisor. Send an email asking if the counselor has been registered and qualified for the merit badge(s) in question and the status of their Youth Protection Training. Ask California councils if the counselor has completed AB506 training and LiveScan. The unit leader’s “blue card” signature verifies their counselor credentials verification.
