Changes in Eagle Scout Proposal Reviews: A Scout is prepared!

  1. Effective immediately, pre-registration is required for all Eagle Scout Project Proposals. Scouts can visit the District calendar to locate the registration links to sign-up for a proposal review.  (or see the schedule below)
     
  2. Please be advised that the District Advancement Committee (DAC) will no longer schedule Eagle Project proposal reviews out of the normally schedule round-table reviews. While in the past we tried to accommodate all proposal review requests, (round-table or not), the scheduling of these (out of normal) reviews has become untenable.  The DAC is asking for the support of all Scoutmasters, Committee Chairs and Eagle coaches, to notify and provide guidance to all prospective Eagle candidates. When a Scout decides to proceed with the planning and developing their selected Eagle Service project proper planning and lead times are paramount.

Eagle Project Proposal reviews are held @ round-table on the 2nd Monday each calendar month August through May of each year (the June proposal review date and location will be announced by the end of first quarter 2018).

Pre-registration is now required and must be completed by the Sunday preceding round-table.


Time Permitting: Walk-ins appointments will be accepted after all pre-registered Scouts proposals are reviewed. If time does not permit the Scout will need to wait until the next scheduled round-table for review of the proposal.

Before Seeking Approval for your Eagle Scout Service Project

The Eagle Candidate should complete the Eagle Scout Service Project Proposal Pages A through E in its entirety. When completing the project “Proposal Page B - Contact Information”  

Please use the following contact information:

Council or District Project Approval Representative

Your Council Service Center
(Baltimore Area Council)

Jim Grant
Harford District Advancement Chair
1711 Sable Ct
Bel Air, MD 21014
e-mail: 
jawigrant@gmail.com  (preferred contact method)

Phone:

Print a copy “Navigating the Eagle Scout Service Project - Information for Project Beneficiaries” (two pages) from the Eagle Scout Workbook and supply a hardcopy to the project beneficiary. On Project Proposal Page E obtain the following signatures (the preferred order is as follows):

  1. Candidate's Promise – Please read the pledge and note the fact that you are indicating that you have read the complete project workbook.
  2. Beneficiary Approval - Be sure to have the Project Beneficiary, sign and date the proposal as well complete the check box indicating that they have received the “Navigating the Eagle Scout Service Project - Information for Project Beneficiaries” document.
  3. Unit Leader Approval - Unit leader’s signature and date.
  4. Unit Committee Approval – Check with your Scoutmaster or Project Coach as who has the ability to approve the Eagle Service Projects within your unit’s committee. This varies unit by unit.
     

TIP:  Obtain signatures and approvals for the Eagle Scout Service Project Fundraising Application (if required) at the same time you are getting approval for your proposal. 

If for some reason you need to reprint Proposal Page E after signatures have been obtained, leave the original copy and place the new copy in your workbook along-side the original.

Please: “Be Prepared”, plan ahead and do not procrastinate. Lack of planning on the Eagle Candidate’s part does not make it a priority for the District Advancement Committee.
