14760Re: [Scouter_T] Scout Advancement Video
- Mar 9, 2014I think so. What you described is what I thought happened at a SM conference but you indicated that you did that while sitting on a BOR which may have been what confused me.ConnieAs part of the Scoutmaster's conference, I double checked the notations on the requirements were properly completed along with the merit badges for higher ranks. I normally required the candidate to attend the conference in full uniform, again to insure that he had the uniform and was wearing it properly. As Scoutmaster, I had the responsibility to insure that the candidate was qualified for the advancement. On another direction, I have presented a Scout to the board if he was not advancing in the manner expected for that individual. Often such a Scout might share with the BOR his problems with advancement and the BOR would then advise me of the results of the conversation. That could be lack of leadership position because the Scout was not comfortable in some positions or that he really enjoyed everything about Scouting for all the activities and was not interested in advancement. Does that help?
