My take on the SM and ASM's not being on the board of review is twofold.
1. The SM/ASM is the boy's coach and mentor, if he "sits in judgement on
a BOR he/she will not be seen by the boy as coach and mentor who he can
go to for explanation, reassurance and guidance in what could be a
crucial moment in his young life.
2. If the BOR does not do it's job correctly (as some recent posts have
related), the SM/ASM's can attest to the boys performance in case an
appeal is warranted.
Yours in Scouting,
