The dates listed must include at least 6 months of cumulative service after your LIFE Board of Review. These dates need not be consecutive, and need not include any time in the most recent 6 months, so long as they are all after your LIFE Board of Review.

Your Unit Leader or Advancement Chair will then submit the application to the Council Registrar, who will compare the information on the form to the Councils advancement records, then sign and date the form confirming that you are eligible for your Eagle Board of Review. The Registrar will then forward the application and Project Workbook to your District Advancement Committee, and someone from that committee will contact you and/or your Unit Leader to arrange a date, time, and place for the Board of Review.*After the Board of Review, the Chairman and District Representative will sign and date the application, and it will be returned to the Council office. The Council Scout Executive will sign and date the application and it will be transmitted to the National Court of Honor at the National Office.
