Eagle Issues—Current Records Prevent Future Issues (February 2012) The importance of retaining membership and advancement records is confirmed every time the National Advancement Committee’s Eagle Issues Task Force is presented with a case where a former member who completed his Eagle requirements long ago never received his credentials. The task force must examine the evidence and determine whether he can be presented his award. Unfortunately, many have not kept the records necessary to prove their cases. Retaining accurate records is everyone’s responsibility. As a Scout completes the requirements for his next badge, his unit should keep records of his progress. Scouts, too, should be encouraged to maintain evidence of their accomplishments. They will need it if they later seek to replace a badge or certificate of rank. Today’s key to retaining good advancement records lies not in a wall chart displayed in the meeting room, but accurate and prompt reporting of all advancements to the council service center. The Internet Advancement system is the mechanized method used by the BSA to track all advancements. It allows a unit representative to enter advancement awards, print advancement reports, and verify rosters. These features aid in documenting a member’s eligibility for the next rank or award as well as provide a document acceptable for transferring from one unit to another. In all cases, a printed Advancement Report must be presented to your Scout shop before any advancement insignia can be purchased. To learn more, consult the Guide to Advancement.
