You haven't earned a rank until after board. Unless it's Eagle that occurs within the troop. One of your jobs as Advancment chair is to arrange these boards and submit unit advancement report to council.
once that is done you can get your patches .Next meeting after board is plenty immediate . If it's Eagle he's not officially an Eagle until paperwork is processed at National after his BOR.
Did you get supplied with current Advancement guide (released 2011) ?can download from National website. All you need is 3 adult members for board not SM or ASM . Our troop schedules boards as
soon as boy has finished SM conference . We recognise him immediatly and supply patch next meeting and at quarterly COH we recognise all for that time period,present mother's pin and boys pin then.
Like others suggested if you have leftover patches it's fine to give it immediatly but if not ,waiting a week is not too bad.
Our district does Eagle boards twice a month (we are a large district )
Sorry if my last post addressed things you allready knew. Reread rest of posts and realized I may have missed the point.

I would caution against awarding a rank or merit badge before at least entering the advancement in Internet Advancement. There have been too many cases where an unregistered Scout has been advanced and it is only caught when the Scout goes for his Eagle and council does the checking.

KEEP SCOUTING LOCAL
I am talking rank, Like peri, we use troopwebhost and I or the CC can enter he pasted his BOR immediately and we simply print the advancement form from the program to be turned into council.
A gain I am a member of a small troop and that maybe the difference.
