Board of Review Scheduling Process


With over 30 registered Scouts, Troop 54 has the following process to organize / schedule Boards of Review (BoR's) for rank advancement.  That process is as follows:

  • BoR's held on Mondays will take place between 6:30 - 7:00 pm only (latest start time will be at 6:50), in order not to interfere with the weekly Troop meeting that should start promptly at 7:00.
  • BoR's will be by appointment only (no walk ins).  To make an appointment the Scout needs to send an e-mail to the Advancement Chair at  BoR's must be requested at least one full day advance (by the end of Sunday if you plan to have a BoR on Monday), and week in advance is preferred.
  • Each Scout who scheduled a BoR needs to bring with her a parent who can volunteer to do a BoR for another scout that same evening.  This does not apply for BoRs during camping trips.
  • A Scout needs to arrive in Full Class A Uniform and upon arrival, should sign-up with the Advancement Chair to hold a slot and to and obtain a BoR form.
  • In order not to delay the start time of BoRs it is important to know that Scoutmaster Conferences should not be planned on the same day of the BoR.
  • It is preferred to have a Scoutmaster Conference 1 or 2 weeks before, ideally during camping trips.  It is also preferred that all requirements be completed prior to a Scoutmaster Conference, but not required.
  • Troop 54 understands that special circumstances may arise and an exception needs to process above needs to be considered.  In which case, please feel free to discuss further with the Scoutmaster or the Advancement Chair.
