2017 Charter Documents and Information Now Available!

The 2017 Recharter information is now posted on the council recharter page!  All units are reminded that all paperwork and fees for 2017 are due to the council by 1 December 2016. 

This year units will send all their paperwork to their District Executives, not the Council Registrar.  The District Executive will assist the units to make sure the paperwork is properly completed then submit the documents to the council registrar. 

Please use the radio button above or click this link to get to the council recharter page.
