In our council, the list is left up to the district advancement chairmen to
maintain, publish, and distribute. Needless to say, it rarely gets done. I
am currently working on updating list for my district. This will be the
first time since 1986. Updating is usually done by collecting the
individual list that each troop maintains and combining them into a district
The bottom line is that if the troops don't do it, it does not get done. I
gave up trying to get the council to take an interest about 15 years ago.
