Advancement News is the official e-letter of the Boy Scouts of America national Advancement Team. Its intent is to support and clarify procedures found in the Guide to Advancement, announce various changes and updates in advancement, and to assist advancement committees in making decisions that can help increase the rate of advancement. The plan is to distribute it monthly, but we’re flexible. It will go out when there is something important to say. Feedback, suggestions, and letters to the editor are welcome at
