Your information is correct. HOWEVER --- the local council and your
original chartered organization can agree to continue the unit NUMBER into
the new chartered organization, thus enabling the council to bridge the
tenure of the unit, PROVIDING the unit recharters with it's new chartered
organization within six months of the lapse of the current charter. That
is, have all your ducks in a row; have the permission, in writing, of the
present chartered organizationi executive officer allowing the release of
the unit number ownership; have your district executive in the process as
he/she is the representative of the council, thus is able to ascertain if
your council will allow the bridge of tenure with a registration of the
unit, same number, with a new chartered partner, within six months of the
close of the present charter.
Hope this helps. As a past dist. commissioner, and having survivied through
the PTA drops of chraters, this does work, normally with no hitch.
