The Board of Review is the final step to complete a Scouts BSA Rank.
Once a Scout has completed the rank requirements including a Scoutmaster conference, they can request a Board of Review in Troop Kit. The review are typically held on the 3rd Monday of the month, but can be scheduled as needed.
The Board is made up of 3-6 members of the Troop Committee, typically Advancement Chairperson and a few others. Unit leaders (Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmaster), parents, or relatives may not serve on the Board.
