Internet Recharter Is Changing

Recently, the Boy Scouts of America moved the internet rechartering process to improve systems and increase speed and efficiency. The new system provides a more simplistic approach to the rechartering process and can be completed from start to finish without a single piece of paper changing hands. 

Buffalo Trace Council will provide training and rechartering office hours to help you complete the new process. Stay tuned for more details.
