How to Sign Up For a Board of Review
A board of review is the last step to gaining your next rank. After you have had all of your requirements signed off and completed a scoutmaster conference, you can request a board of review. The process for requesting a Board of Review has changed slightly. There are two steps to scheduling a board of review:
1. After you have had your scoutmaster conference and are ready for a board of review, please send a request to Mrs. Mangalick at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will verify that all of your information has been entered correctly in Troopmaster. Mrs. Mangalick will then email you either an approval or will let you know what is missing from your record.
2. After you hear back from Mrs. Mangalick that she has confirmed your requirements, please schedule your Board of Review at this SignupGenius link. Be sure to sign up in the SCOUT REQUEST section. On the night of your Board of Review, please arrive in full Class A uniform and have your scout book with you.
What can you expect during a Board of Review?
The board of review panel consists of three parents (other than your own) who ask you questions about what you have learned while working on your rank and also about scouting principles and the troop in general. The interviews usually last 15-30 minutes depending on the rank you are going for. You should wear your full Class A uniform and be prepared with your signed scout book and the Scout Law and Scout Oath.
