Rank Advancement requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class may be signed off by a Troop member ranked Star Scout or higher. Star, Life, and Eagle requirements are signed off by your Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster only. Once all rank requirements are completed contact your Scoutmaster for a Scoutmaster Conference. Once your Scoutmaster Conference is completed, contact 3 to 6 adult members of the Troop Committee (not Scoutmasters or Assistant Scoutmasters) for a Board of Review. The scout must contact committee members IN ADVANCE via email or phone to scheudle their Board of Review. All Board of Reviews for Rank Advancement must be completed by the Tuesday prior to Court of Honor for the Rank Advancement to be awarded. Family members cannot be on a scout's Board of Review.
Please email email@example.com for contact info for Troop Committee Members.
