URGENT! Membership rechartering and annual dues – Due by 11/18

Each year the Troop must renew its membership charter with the Council. As
it has been communicated from the Council to all registered scouters the
2020 annual membership renewal (re-charter) fee for scouts is increasing to
$60 and to $36 for registered adults. Each scout is also responsible for
Troop dues which are $10 per quarter. Scouts may pay for the entire year up
front or on a quarterly basis. You may also elect to update your scout’s
Boy’s Life subscription. Additionally, they can also pay 2020 Order of the
Arrow (OA) Lodge dues at this time. Your scout may elect to have the funds
deducted from their scout account (part of pay your own way).

Re-charter fee for adults and scouts along with first quarter dues are due
by Monday, November 18th. Please fill out the lower portion of the
attached form with your choices and turn in with payment at the 11/18
meeting. There is no meeting on Veterans Day the 11th

If you are a registered adult and have received an email notification that
your Youth Protection Training (YPT) is scheduled to expire, you MUST take
the new YPT, otherwise the online re-chartering system will not allow you
to register as an adult. Go to www.my.scouting.org to complete the online
training. An additional item that must also be completed by each
registered adult this year is the criminal background check authorization
form. This form must be completed and turned in with your payment in order
to re-charter with the troop. If you have not yet completed the form please
see Mr. Kupsky, Mr. Gill, or Mr. Dunning at an upcoming meeting to obtain a
form. You may also print one online at tinyurl.com/y52jcrkw.

If any family has already budgeted for the $33, which was the fee last
year, and would like GSLAC to pay the difference for them this year, then
they can contact Kevin Buhr directly (kevin.buhr@scouting.org 414-425-2961)
and he will arrange for GSLAC to pay the difference.
