Are you interested in or involved with advancement procedures at any level? Then Advancement News is the one e-letter you should subscribe to. Advancement News is the official e-letter of the Boy Scouts of America national Advancement Team and the national Advancement Committee. Its intent is to support and clarify procedures found in the Guide to Advancement, announce various changes and updates in advancement, and to assist advancement committees in making decisions that can help increase the rate of advancement. The plan is to distribute it monthly, but it can vary.
Each 6-8 page issue of Advancement News includes a wide range of articles covering topics such as training opportunities for advancement administrators, advancement committee mechanics, Cub Scout and Boy Scout advancement, merit badges, Eagle rank issues, special needs and much more. Periodically there is also a survey that allows you to provide input to the national Advancement Team on various subjects. Also general feedback, suggestions, and letters to the editor are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advancement News is designed for council and district advancement chairs, advancement staff advisors, and Eagle processors. However, any Scouting volunteer or professional may subscribe.
