May the CC sit on a BoR

Recommended Posts

The manual states that the BoR consists of three Committee Members. Is the Committee Chairman a member of the Committee and eligible to sit on a BoR?

If the book states it, then it sounds authoritative.

 

The CC is a member of the Committee but not necessarily a Committee Member, the deduction still appears to be in order.

 

We have done it in the past and it has been acceptable

 

Getting a BOR together has not always been a simple matter, so reason and practicality generally prevailed.

 

You question makes me believe you have a different perspective.

Good question.

 

We've never even thought about this. Our CC does occasionaly sit on BOR.

 

But now that you mention it, is the POTHUS a member of his own cabinet?

 

Then again, I was of the impression the minimum requirements for a Troop was a committee of three, including the CC. Since only committee members can sit on a BOR, the bare minimum committee could not conduct a BOR if the CC were not included.

 

Put me down for not sure, but I think they can.

Whoa there!

except for an Eagle board who requires 3 committee members????? BOR's in many cases are one (1) committee member and two 'concerned Parents'...

 

the C C is a member of the troop committee simply approved/appointed by the charter organization to be the CC. He or She fills out the same BSA paperwork the rest of us BOR sitting c.m.'s do...

 

the only folks who can't sit boards are parents of the Scout standing the BOR and those program side chaps and lassies called SM AND ASM's.....

Your troop needs to move into the 21st century and read the current Advancement Handbook. Only registered committee members may sit on a BoR.

 

How "concerned" can an unregistered parent be? What do they know of the progam and how to judge how well it is working. Most "concerned parents" are only concerned with giving out badges so Johnny's feelings aren't hurt.

Page 29 of "Advancement Committee Policies and Procedures" is where it says that parents of a Scout cannot sit on a board of review for him. On the same page it says that the BOR is made up of 3 to 6 Committee Members.

Anarchist has it backwards.

 

Tenderfoot through Life rank board of reviews are done by the troop committee. No less than three, no more than six committee members participate. This information is in the The Boy Scout Handbook, Scoutmaster Handbook, The Troop Committee Guidebook, The Advancement Committee Policies and Procedures Manual, Scoutmaster/Asst.SM training, and Troop Committee Challenge training.

 

Eagle Boards may include others beyond the troop committee members.

 

How can a Scoutmaster, Committee chair, Advancement chair, or any trained troop leader not be aware of this? As far as who can be in the BOR that too is shared. See page 29 of the Advancement Committee Policies and Procedures Manual, in BOLD letters.

Unit leaders, assistant unit leaders, relatives, or guardians may not serve as members of a scout's board of review.

Do you have to be registered with BSA to be a member of a troop committee? I think it is prefered, but not reguired.

My questions should have been:

 

If a parent is a committee member, can they be a member on the BOR, for their son?

Not if you want to proceed according to the advancement policies.
