Scoutmaster Conference Info

For the future, request for Scoutmaster conferences and Board of Reviews should be made at least 2 weeks prior to a Court of Honor. This policy will allow the Adult Leadership more time to prepare for our Courts of Honor.

 As a learning tool in our continual efforts to develop our scouts into mature, responsible young men it is preferable that all requests for Scoutmaster conference’s be made by the Scout himself. This method will also assist in developing our Scouts communication skills and builds on their self confidence. Request for Scoutmaster Conferences may be made, by the scout, by telephone, email or at Troop meeting.

 All Scoutmaster conference’s will be held prior to or immediately following troop meetings or at a convenient time during our monthly campouts. Scouts requesting Scoutmaster Conferences should be prepared to arrive 15 minutes prior to the troop meeting or to stay 15 minutes after the troop meeting.

 

Information for Scoutmaster Conference and Board Of Review

How does a Scout dress for his Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review?

 Scouts are requested to be in full class "A" Uniform at his Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review

 For Troop 125, this means wearing a complete uniform shirt with up-to-date badges, a neckerchief, having your shirt tucked in and buttoned up and wearing your merit badge sash.

 Here are some reasons a Scout may not pass his Board Of Review.

 • Scout is not in uniform

 •Scout's uniform is not up-to-date and complete

 •Scout does not have his Boy Scout Handbook

 •Scout has not memorized the Scout Oath and Scout Law

 •Requirement(s) have not been signed off in the Boy Scout Handbook

 •Scout treats the board of review frivolously or is not prepared to answer even the most basic questions asked.

 Note: In keeping with the Boy Scouts of America objective of encouraging our Scouts, the board of review does not "fail" scouts. Rather, the board of review points out what needs attention or to be fixed and then suggests a date when the Scout and board of review should reconvene (usually the next troop meeting).
