I am not sure that there is any specific official literature on this process
unless it is called out in the description of how a district is to operate
and especially the district advancement committee.
In the district that I am in, the Scout Roundtable meets the first week of
the month, the District Committee the second week of the month, and the
advancement committee the third week of each month. In general, to get on
any given month schedule for Eagle Board of Reviews or Eagle Project
reviews, the Scoutmaster or Troop Advancement chairman must turn over the
Eagle Project writeup and or schedule the Eagle BOR to the district
advancement chairman at the Roundtable. This allows the district advancement
chairman time to call on such help as might be needed for Eagle BOR or
project reviews, depending on the number of reviews or BOR scheduled.
In general, for the Eagle project reviews, it is not required that either
the Scoutmaster or the candidate be present at the advancement committee
meeting. The council does utilize a guideline booklet that tells the
candidate pretty much exactly what type of information is required on the
writeup that is submitted to obtain approval of the project. If the kid will
follow the instructions for completion of the request for approval forms,
his presence at the meeting should not be required.
