How do Eagle Rank Advancement Boards Work?
There is no reason to be nervous about your Eagle Boards -- we are here to help you succeed! Here is what happens:

Two Scouts per three-member Board of Review are generally scheduled at 7pm and 7:45pm. First, the Board reviews the materials, which typically takes about 20 minutes. This is the first time they will see your stuff, so PLEASE don't be late! Then, they may speak briefly to the Advisor, then the Scout and Advisor are invited in for a discussion (the Advisor is there to listen), which also typically takes around 20 minutes. The Scout and Advisor are excused, the Board reaches a unanimous decision, and the Scout and Advisor are called in to discuss the results.

The most common reasons for "failing" a Project Board are missing signatures or not bringing your advisor with you.

Note for adult volunteers
Since two Scouts are reviewed by three Board members, we need one-and-a-half times as many adult volunteers as prospective Scouts. If you would like to be added to our volunteer list, please email Nick Hall. We always assign new volunteers with "old timers," so it is very easy to come up to speed on Board participation.

Eagle Project Review Boards
When: First and Third Thursdays of each month
Host: Nicholas Hall (925) 837-3165 nick.hall@nawtonhall.com

Scouts must email at least one week in advance of the meeting as we need to schedule adult volunteers to serve on the Eagle Boards. In your email include your name, Troop number, Advisor's name and email address, and a brief description of your proposed project. Also, 'cc' your Advisor on all communications.

Bring three copies of your proposal and any supporting materials for the Board to review. Be prepared to give a brief, verbal presentation of your proposal. You MUST have the three signatures (Beneficiary, Scoutmaster, Committee Chair) on your original copy. Bring an adult with you, preferably your Advisor, and wear Class A's. If all of that is done, you can just come on Thursday, no need to drop anything off beforehand.

Eagle Boards of Review
When: First and Third Thursdays of each month
Host: Brent Henderson (925) 212-5453 bthe@pacbell.net

Scouts must call at least one week in advance of the meeting as we need to schedule adult volunteers to serve on the Eagle Boards.

You must have all Eagle requirements completed and your Eagle application completely signed off before your 18th birthday, and before you can schedule a Final Board of Review, which must be held no later than 90 days after your 18th birthday. You also need to bring an Advancement Report (3 part document) which your Troop can supply. Use the Advancement Checklist to make sure your Rank Advancement application is complete.

Mr. Henderson needs to review your materials in advance, so please phone him to arrange getting these to him.
