a Scout passes his SM Conference for rank advancement: WHO is
responsible for calling for a board of review? the SM, the Scout? how do
you handle this in your unit? what does the advancement guidelines say,
if anything about this step?
We have a sign up list (pretty dusty at the moment), for BORs. Once a
Scout has passed his conference he puts his name on the list. I also let
the advancement chairman know. Hopefully, very soon, we'll be having
regularly scheduled BORs so that Scouts don't have to wait too long.
BTW, our list includes the Scout's proposed rank and the date of the SM
conference. That's basically so I can keep track of how long it takes
for the BOR to be assembled. We also have a sign-up sheet for SM
conferences (even though I know who needs one even before they do!).
