A change in the national reporting of membership data will begin effective January 1, 2016. Starting then, a unit that has not reregistered by its expiration date will be considered “separated” and immediately dropped from BSA’s membership reporting. There will no longer be a “lapse period” for units that do not reregister on time; we will no longer use the term “lapsed” for a unit that has not renewed. This means that units with a December 31, 2014 expiration date will be included.
What does this mean for you if you don’t turn in your charter on time?
Your unit will not be able to go on outings because of loss of insurance
Your unit will not be able to access or update advancements
