According to my copy of Advancement Policies and Procedures Committee Guide,
1994 Edition, page 16 has this passage:
"After a Scout has completed all requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class,
First Class, Star, and Life ranks, or an Eagle Palm, he appears before a
board of review. This board of review is made up of at least three and not
more that six MEMBERS OF THE TROOP COMMITTEE (my emphasis) ... Unit leaders,
assistant unit leaders, relatives, or guardians may not serve as members of
a Scout's board of review"
I read this to require board members to be registered. But Eagle Boards are
different. On page 17:
"The board of review for an Eagle candidate is composed of a minimum of
three members and a maximum of six members. These members DO NOT HAVE TO BE
REGISTERED IN SCOUTING (my emphasis), but they must have an understanding of
the importance and purpose of the Eagle board of review."
