Advancement Chair

The advancement chair helps Cub Scouts move through the ranks and transition into a Scouts BSA troop. The advancement chair will:

  • Have a working knowledge of the Cub Scout advancement plan.

  • Help plan and conduct induction and advancement recognition ceremonies.

  • Coordinate with the Webelos leader and Scoutmaster for meaningful transition/graduation ceremonies from Cub Scouting to a troop.

  • Educate parents, guardians, and pack committee members in ways to stimulate Cub Scout advancement.

  • Promote the use of Cub Scout den advancement charts and other tools to recognize and record advancement in the den.

  • Collect den advancement reports at pack leaders’ meetings for use when ordering badges and insignia from the local council service center. This can be done with Scoutbook.

  • Promote Boys’ Life magazine as an aid to advancement.

  • Help build or obtain advancement equipment for use in making advancement ceremonies more effective.

  • Promote the wearing and proper use of uniform and insignia.
