Boy Scout Boards of Review
After a Boy Scout has completed the requirements for any rank, he appears before a board of review. Its purpose is to determine the quality of his experience and decide whether he has fulfilled the requirements for the rank.
Eagle Scout Boards of Review: At least one district or council representative must serve as a member of an Eagle Scout board of review.

While a Life Scout, plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or your community. (The project must benefit an organization other than Boy Scouting.) A project proposal must be approved by the organization benefiting from the effort, your unit leader and unit committee, and the council or district before you start. To obtain approval from the district for an Eagle Scout service project, attend an Eagle Scout project approval meeting.

Merit Badge Counselors
What is needed to become a MBC?
- BSA Adult Leader application: Anyone interested in being a MBC must fill out an application, even current leaders. The Position Code for MBC is "42". There is no fee associated with being a MBC. http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/524-501.pdf
- Merit Badge Counselor Interest Sheet: This is where they select which merit badge they are interested in counseling. http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/34405.pdf
- Youth Protection Training: Standard for all registered positions. http://myscouting.org
All 3 of these forms should be turned in to the Tall Timbers District Advancement Chair (Mike Lampkin) or Tall Timbers District Merit Badge Counselor Coordinator (Edna Asare) and they will be processed accordingly.
Once a Merit Badge Counselor is registered, they are not actually part of the troop but are a member of the District Committee. You won't see them listed on your recharter or any paperwork. So whenever possible, please help us keep our roster current by sending your updates to the Advancement Chair or MBC Coordinator.
