Eagle Project Review

Life Scouts ready to begin the review process should email their completed project plan and signature page (except for the district signature) to gteagleprojects@gmail.com and request an appointment to have their project reviewed.
  • Scouts should always copy a parent or registered leader on all emails.
  • A project review cannot be scheduled before the completed project plan and signature page are sent to the email address above.
  • Reviews will be done by appointment only.
    • In-person reviews take place before monthly district roundtables.
      • Roundtables are on the 1st Tuesday of the month and typically occur at the Bayless Elementary cafeteria.
      • We cannot accept walk-in reviews at roundtables.
    • Virtual reviews via Zoom are also available.
  • Scouts approaching their 18th birthday should indicate their needed timeline when they request their appointment.
  • The Project Review Team will review the documents and respond to the Scout with the next steps within 48 hours.

If you have any questions about the project review process, please email Eagle Project Review Chair, Nate Jeffries at gteagleprojects@gmail.com.

Internet Rechartering

Click here to visit the Rechartering website.

Click here for a brief tutorial (requires Flash Player)

Click here for an overview.

To renew your unit charter on-line:

  • Sixty days before your unit’s expiration date, select a renewal processor. This should be someone in your unit who is familiar with the members and leaders of your unit to ensure all information provided through the process is correct.
  • Your unit charter renewal packet is distributed to the unit leadership and includes an access code specifically assigned to your unit.
  • Thirty to forty-five days before your unit’s expiration date, the renewal processor clicks Recharter Now on this webpage and begins the process.
  • When the on-line process is completed, the renewal processor prints the completed charter renewal application.
  • The Unit Leader and the Executive Officer sign the charter renewal application. The signed application along with any individual applications for new youth members or adult leaders, and materials received in the charter renewal packet and all appropriate fees, should then be brought to the Council Service Center, or your district’s charter turn-in meeting.

Need to update Scoutbook?

Scoutbook is becoming more and more prevalent as a tool our National Team is using to assist units and track advancement. There is a new tool on the app to help Leaders plan meetings, find training, and promote scouts right from their smartphone! Den leaders can also watch presentations about den meetings and look at the requirements to help prepare for activities. I have attached a Scoutbook presentation to help any units new to Scoutbook, or quite frankly anyone using Scoutbook, to help them get information and learn the system. It is quite comprehensive, but it should help answer some of those basic questions. Click here for more information: Scoutbook for Leaders.

Need to update your Unit’s Map Pin?

It has come to my attention that many leaders are unaware of how to change the beascout.org map pin to help people locate and connect with your unit. This function is vital to any healthy unit to have up-to-date information so prospective families can easily find your units. I have attached a step-by-step document to help you update your pin with the correct leadership information and meeting locations to make it easier for your units to be found, especially with ScoutFest coming up! I also found this helpful article from Bryan on Scouting, https://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2017/08/16/update-your-beascout-pin-today-so-future-scouting-families-can-find-you-tomorrow/. Click here for information on how to make changes to your unit’s Map Pin: How to Update Your Unit’s Map Pin.
