<< Hello fellow scouters! In our council, a change occured this year that has
a bit perplexed and I'm wondering if this is true in other parts of the
country or is it a National change. I'm being told that in order to qualify
for free rank advancements for the coming year, a unit has to have 100% Boy's
Life subscriptions. (I am not refering about Quality Unit, which I know is
only one of the requirements, and not mandatory to recieve this). This is a
change from previous years and as we're doing our rechartering now, this came
up. Thanks for your reply.
Ed Horowitz >>
Our Council (Viking), does not participate in a free advancement program.
I imagine that this is a promotion that is administered on a council by
council basis to encourage units to advance their Scouts. If that is the
case, I don't know why they can't set their own parameters. Just a guess.
