Advancement is the process by which scouts progress from rank to rank. Everything done to advance - to learn skills, earn ranks and other awards and recognition - is designed to educate or to otherwise expand horizons. This is the case from the time a member joins, and then moves through, the programs of Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting.

About Advancement

Rank advancement requirements may be signed off on any scheduled outing or activity, or on Sunday evenings prior to or following the regular troop meeting.

Boards of Review are normally scheduled for the first Troop Meeting of the month, but you must notify the Advancement Chairman at least one week in advance so he can plan on having enough qualified adults available.
