I don't believe that to be the case. The Advancement Report (34403) is a 3
part carbonized form. The copies are labeled "Local Council Copy" (White),
"District Copy" (Pink), and "Unit Copy" (Green). At least here in GNYC that
is exactly where they end up. The original of the form is in a folder for
each unit in the council office, the pink copy is mailed to the district
advancement chairman, and the green copy is retained by the unit. There is no
copy available to be sent to either the regional or national offices.
