2019 Recharter for LDS Units
On May 8, 2018, a joint statement was released by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) stating that, “effective on December 31, 2019, the Church will conclude its relationship as a chartered organization with all Scouting programs around the world.”
Together, the Church and the BSA have decided that all LDS unit charters will be automatically renewed with an expiration date of December 31, 2019
Since LDS units will be automatically renewed, it is important that the Updating Rosters process be followed
. This process will ensure that all youth and adults participating in Scouting are properly registered and are eligible for all benefits of the full Scouting program. Your District Executive will be in contact with ward leaders before the end of the year to work together through the process.
All fees for unit liability insurance and annual registration, including the fees for those of other faiths who join Latter-day Saint units, are paid directly from Church headquarters to the BSA National Council. Boy’s Life fees should be remitted to the council office prior to Dec 14, if your unit has youth who subscribe to Boy’s Life. Boy’s Life fees are $12/per subscription for the year.
