In almost every case, the board of review is conducted by at least three members of the troop committee.
The "In almost every case" portion refers to the EAGLE Board of Review, which does NOT follow the same requirements. In fact all but one of the members of an EBoR don't even have to be members of BSA.wagionvigil wrote:Who Conducts the Board of Review?
In almost every case, the board of review is conducted by at least three members of the troop committee. The Scoutmaster and assistant Scoutmasters are not members of the board of review. The Scoutmaster can introduce the Scout to the board members and may sit with him to hear the board's decision, but should not be present during the actual board of review. Obviously, the Scout's parent should not serve on his board of review panel.
All boards must constitute at least three and not more than six members who are all 21 years of age or older.
Now lets look closer at the above and I am nit picking. The words "committee members" are not in the last sentence so there is the leeway. There is the Out.

Our previous District Executive has a degree in something like Youth Leadership from BYU.
That is more broad focused. I would like to see a more narrow focused degree thus the name Youth Services with Scouting.
They would take course work in fitness, outdoor skills, Lifesaving and other Scout skills and course designed aroung knwoing to program. One track would be Fund Raising, one track would be Scouting Program (units and youth). It is this last group that would be professional Camp Directors later in life.
Wagion...interpretations of all the different policies can drive us all crazy. It also gives rise to "sea lawyers" and out of control adults trying to fit the policy to what they want to have happen.
"In addition the chartered organization [rep. (COR)] may serve on the troop committee." SM Handbook, pg 156
The review has three purposes:
*To make sure that the work has been learned and completed.
*To check to see what kind of experience the boy is having in his patrol and troop.
*To encourage the Scout to advance to the next rank.
