National Recharter Update

Posted by Darlene Scheffler Thursday, September 19, 2019 10:51:00 AM

Important update affecting all registered members during the upcoming recharter cycle:

All registered adult leaders must review the Background Check Disclosure and complete the BSA’s new Background Check Authorization. These authorization forms must be submitted with each unit’s recharter this December. No recharters will be able to be processed without this signed form from all registered adult leaders that are being renewed for the 2020 calendar year.

We apologize for the inconvenience that these two announcements will place on your unit and its leadership while you continue to provide a life-changing Scouting program to the youth of Southeast Texas.


If you have any further questions or need additional information, please contact Thomas Franklin, Deputy Scout Executive, at

Thank you for all you do for Scouting!
