Board of Review

As a final step toward advancement, the Scout goes before a Board of Review which is a panel of Troop Committee members and experienced adult Scouters. The Scout will appear in full ‘Class A” uniform with his Boy Scout Handbook so the members of the Board can review his progress and sign off his advancement. The Board of Review has three objectives:

  • Determine the extent to which the boy has had a positive and effective experience in the Troop.
  • Make certain that all advancement standards have been met. The Board of Review does not retest the Scout on his completed requirements.
  • Encourage further progress.

Boards will be held after the committee meeting the third Thursday of each month except November and December. Boys must notify the advancements coordinator a minimum of 1 week prior to the committee meeting for a board to be held. Boards to be held outside of that time must be approved by the advancements coordinator and 3 adults must be arranged by the boy and also approved by the advancements coordinator.
