RECHARTER DEADLINE FAST APPROACHING!!!!!

Posted by 15lawdo on Oct 6 2018 - 10:29am

The deadline to hand in recharter paperwork and dues for 2019 is October 10.

What is Recharter 2019?

BSA issues a charter, or authorization, through each local council (Chester County Council, in our case) to a chartering organization that sponsors our troop (Troop 50). Our chartering organization is Devon 50, Inc., or the Trustees. This charter must be renewed annually and appropriate dues paid to Council in order to officially operate the troop for the next calendar year (2018). The annual renewal process is called "recharter". The council dues are based on the scouts and adults listed in the recharter, which means we need an accurate headcount of scouts and scouters that are members of Troop 50. Your prompt reply to this email and recharter packet submission is very much appreciated by the recharter team.

Posted by 15lawdo on Oct 3 2018 - 1:54pm

Thanks to all those that came out to the Parent Meeting that was hosted by the Committee. In speaking with a number of you there is interest and need for volunteers. Please consider volunteering for one of our open positions below. Just to clarify many of our volunteer opportunities do not require camping, tents, wearing a Boy Scout uniform nor do they all require multiple hours a week. We have something for everyone!

EXPECT DELAYS ON MY.SCOUTING.ORG AND DELAYS IN RECEIVING YOUR CERTIFICATE
2018 YPT season has OVERDUE - BSA NATIONAL deadline for completion September 30, 2018. Devon 50 is a large troop so keeping everyone on the same schedule allows for adults to be compliant for the entire year of scouting activities and is the recommendation of BSA to have a YPT Season. YPT is REQUIRED training for all adults who interact with Scouts, as well as a requirement for rechartering with Devon 50. All current YPTs taken during 2017 YPT Season are still valid until September 30, 2018. As a reminder, YPT must be taken annually for all Chester Co Council troops.
