issues. We need at least one parent/guardian of each Scout to attend,

Parents and Scouts,
are quickly approaching that time of year where we recharter our
Troop and Scouts. While we normally would have started that process,
this year we are in a holding pattern, due to the recent announcement
from BSA National Council about an increase in annual dues. A portion
of the dues that you pay our Troop ultimately ends up supporting
the BSA at the national level. Currently, that amount is $33.00
per Scout and adult leader. The balance is used to support the Troop
and our local council.
National has stated that it will notify all local councils by October
23rd what the new dues amount will be. Troop 465 likely will have
no choice but to pass that increase along to our Scouts and leadership.
Currently, our annual dues for Scouts are $108 and $54 for our leaders.
We expect that amount to increase due to the increase at the national
we have a final amount for the dues increase, we will send another
email with the new Troop 465 dues amount. Our Troop will continue
to do its best to ensure that all boys who want to participate can
do so, regardless of ability to pay. If your Scout will need a scholarship,
then we will be available to discuss that, once we know the actual
amount of dues to be paid.
you wish to get a jump on recharter, you can start filling out another
BSA Annual Health & Medical Record
(health form) Parts A & B and the 2020
Recharter Form. We will accept these forms and dues payments
at a later date to be determined, after final dues amounts are confirmed.
contact me if you have any questions about the recharter process.
