BSA Authorizes Changes to Advancement Requirements Due to COVID-19

The Boy Scouts of America has made the following revisions with respect to earning the Eagle, Quartermaster or Summit Awards.  

  1. Now through September 30, 2020, the National Council is allowing local council Scout executives to grant extensions, or delegate authority to the Council Advancement Committee to grant extensions with limitations as noted on the attached FAQ Sheet.
  2. Electronic signatures or digital signatures are acceptable for rank advancement and for the Eagle/Summit/Quartermaster packets/applications through September 30, 2020.
  3. Scoutmaster Conferences and Boards of Review can be conducted via video or phone conference

If you have a Scout working on their Eagle, Quartermaster or Summit awards that fall into the need for an extension, please have them send those requests to Alayne Weber at They will be reviewed by our Council Eagle Board Chair; the Scout, as well as the district Eagle Board Chair, will be notified of the decision.

For more detailed information about this and information about other advancement related questions, please see the FAQ Sheet.
