For the definitive answer, you need the advancement guide which should be
available from your council service center. You will also find the
information in the Scoutmaster Handbook. Board of Review membership for
Tenderfoot through Life is at least three, but not more than six members of
the troop committee. Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters and
parents/guardians of the candidate may not be members of the Board of
Review. Eagle boards may members who are non-registered adults who are
familiar with the BSA program, but still connot have SMs, ASMs and
parents/guardians of the candidate. The SM normally introduces the
candidate and may remain in the room, but does not examine or vote on the
candidate. I can't find anything that spells out whether or not
parents/guardians may attend the BOR as observers.
