Time to Re-Charter!

Online Charter Renewal is now open and ready for units to complete their 2023 renewal. Here are just a few suggestions to help with making it a smooth process.

  1. Start with a roster check of the unit membership to make sure that everyone who is active is on the roster. Also check to make sure addresses and phone numbers are current. Make sure that all new recruits are on the roster. If not, do a roster update to pull them in.
  2. Make sure that your Key 3 leadership is correct. The Key 3 are the only ones who can work on the roster so make sure the correct people are registered in those positions.
  3. Make sure that all adult leaders are current with their YPT for the 2023 year.

The Key 3 should have received an email with this information and more to start the process. If you are a Key 3 member of your unit and have not received the email please reach out to Susan Meyer at

The Voyageurs Area Council is a voluntary association of individuals, including representatives of organizations chartered by the Boy Scouts of America, whose purpose it is to promote the Scouting Program within 13 counties in Northeastern Minnesota, 4 counties in Northern Wisconsin, and Gogebic County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
