New Guide to Advancement
Guide to Advancement The 2011 Guide to Advancement is ready. It has a few significant changes and gives individual units more room to define their own expectations:

Councils may choose to make a transition over the next few months from the former advancement publication to the new Guide to Advancement. After January 1, however, the new guide must be consulted for all advancement procedures.

It would be a good idea to get this new document into the hands of your unit committee chair, advancement chair, and scoutmaster/advisor/cubmaster as soon as you can.

I really like the new description for active participation. It allows a unit to set ahead of time participation levels but allows scouts to use other positive activities as make up. Thus an older scout in sports won't hopefully be harrassed by his trip for missing some campouts when it is time for advancement. It also is clear that the activity levels are set in advance thus units cannot have a moving target or raise the bar after the fact just to put additional hurdles in front of the scout. Overall I think it is a positive clarification.
