Reports Required for Rank Advancements
This is a reminder to Scouting leaders that Advancement Report forms are required to purchase rank advancements in the Scout Shops.
If your unit is using ScoutBook (which we encourage all packs and troops to use), or Internet Advancement (which will be phased out soon), you can print the report directly from your computer. The report must be turned in when rank advancements are purchased.
The alternative to the computer reports is manually completing the form (available at www.nlcbsa.org/advancement)
Without these reports, the council may not be able to have accurate records of what the Scouts have earned. This is especially important for the Scouts as the move through the program as dates of ranks earned and time requirements require accurate records.
When you send someone to the Scout Shop to pick up awards, make sure the bring along the Advancement report!
