Annual Recharter Training

It's our favorite time of year again... recharter time! Join the district commissioner team and our senior district executive for recharter process updates.We will cover changes to the recharter system and provide information on upcoming recharter turn-in dates. Units that have not received their code may request one during this meeting or by contacting Cristal Razo or George Abercrombie.
What is recharter?
Units need to re-register Scouts and unit leaders every fall for the upcoming calendar year. During this process, unit leaders are able to add and remove Scouts and leaders, update member addresses, add Boys Life magazine subscriptions for those families that request them. Once complete, the unit's recharter paperwork will be printed out and the annual dues will be paid either electronically or in person during an upcoming recharter turn-in.
Who should attend?
Any unit leader that will take part in the recharter process.Please pre-register for this training at the link below.

Phoenix District Roundtable
November 5, 2020 | 7:00 pm | Location TBD
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers.
The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas, information on upcoming events and trainings, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.
Roundtable breakouts are a great place for leaders and parents to come together to share what you know so we can all learn more about Scouting.
Cub Scout breakouts are focused on the needs of leaders and volunteers in packs. You're not on your own out there and you don't have to reinvent the wheel. Come to a meeting to find out how much work has already been done for you. There are tons of resources available to help you put together a top-notch program.
Scouts BSA breakouts are focused on leaders and volunteers in troops, crew, ships to share quality resources, knowledge, and skills that enable and motivate leaders to deliver an outstanding program. Parents and leaders of Webelos Scouts crossing over into troops are also invited to explore Scouting.
Order of the Arrow breakouts are dedicated for members of the Order of the Arrow.
Special interest breakouts are focused on a special topic each month.
