Has anyone reviewed the new Annual Unit Charter Agreement https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/membership/pdf/524-182_web.pdf with their COR and Charter Organization Executive Officer. The new charter adds 4 new areas that the Charter Organization agrees to.
- Be a good steward of unit resources and adhere to BSA Fiscal Policies. ie. Unit Money Earning projects.
- Actively participate in the local councils annual giving campaign and product sales to ensure quality Scouting throughout the community. (ex. Friends of Scouting campaign, popcorn, camp card, etc.)
- Encourage the unit to maintain accurate and timely registration records of all its youth and adult members. Utilizing BSA’s online registration tools like membership leads, online applications, and online recharter. (no leader is registered w/o YPT)
- Coordinate with the local council to provide annual recruitment opportunities to grow the BSA movement as well as publicize BSA through inhouse publications.
What does this mean to the units? When does this new agreement become effective as we are in the recharter process?
Also Document seems to have been rushed out as it was not well proofed (bullet 4 under Charter organization) and has no date on. Properties show it was published on 23 Nov 2020
