Rechartering - The 2009 recharter packages were handed out to the units in attendance.  The recharter packages are due not later than 01/15/09.  We will have time set aside at the January Roundtable to turn in the recharter packages.  If you have adult leaders that seem to be missing from your recharter package it may be because they did not respond to an email requesting permission to do a background check.  National BSA has run background checks on adult leaders that have filled out an application in the past 5 years.  Leaders prior to that were 'grandfathered'.  This summer the grandfathered adults should have received an email requesting permission to perform a background check.  Adult leader who did not respond will need to fill out an adult application in order to recharter.
