If memory serves (big if), Eagle Service project proposals must be
reviewed and approved by the District Advancement Committee. Does the
official literature provide any rules/guidelines/suggestions for the
specific procedures that should be used in the review/approval process?
If so, what are they? If not, what sort of procedures has your district
implemented, how long have they been in place, and are they effective?
Our district has made recent dramatic changes in these procedures. Some
folks are not particularly pleased with the new way of doing things,
and I've been asked by one of them to poll the members of this august
body for their reactions.
Old way: The candidate's SM delivered the proposal to the district
advancement chairman. Generally, the advancement chairman would discuss
the project with at least one other member of the committee, and they
would reach a decision. If they had questions or problems regarding the
project, they usually went through the SM to get them resolved.
New way: The candidate and (optionally) his SM deliver the proposal to the
committee, which reviews the project and discusses it with the candidate.
Presumably, most questions and/or problems can be resolved on the spot.
