Hi all, my district is being proactive in thinking about how we might conduct a virtual Eagle Scout board of review, given that some board members may be hesitant to meet during the next few weeks. Obviously, if the board can wait, that’s the best option, but if timing is an issue, a virtual meeting seems like a viable alternative.
The Guide to Advancement provides guidance on this in Section 184.108.40.206 Boards of Review through Videoconferencing.
Apart from getting council approval, another key recruitment is that “All members of the board of review must be visible to the Scout, and any observers with the Scout must be visible to members of the board of review.” Thus, not all videoconferencing tools may be appropriate.
Does anyone have any positive (or negative) experiences or recommendations on tools or hosting these reviews virtually?
