Policy on Unauthorized Changes to Advancement Program

No council, committee, district, unit, or individual has the authority to add to, or subtract from, advancement requirements. There are limited exceptions relating only to members with special needs. For details see section 10, “Advancement for Members With Special Needs.”

Mandated Procedures and Recommended Practices

This publication clearly identifies mandated procedures with words such as “must” and “shall.” Where such language is used, no council, committee, district, unit, or individual has the authority to deviate from the procedures covered, without the written permission of the National Advancement Program Team.

Recommended best practices are offered using words like “should,” while other options and guidelines are indicated with terms such as “may” or “can.” Refer questions on these to your local district or council advancement chairs or staff advisors. They, in turn, may request interpretations and assistance from the National Advancement Program Team.

Please Note New E-Mail for the the Eagle Desk:

Steps to Eagle Checklist

Twin Rivers Council process for Eagle Scout Award

Council Eagle Scout Tracking

Updated weekly status of Eagle Scout candidates

Eagle Scout Reference Check Acknowledgement Form

Historical Eagle Roster (Twin Rivers plus predecessor Councils)

This list contains all of the known Eagle Scouts for the Twin Rivers Council and all of the former Councils (Adirondack, Fort Orange, Governor Clinton, Mohican, Uncle Sam, Saratoga, Schenectady, Sir William Johnson).

Of note, in the seventies, the national Council stored the information on the then state of the art microfiche. Overtime, there was damage to the microfiche files before they were digitized. So, you will see gaps in some information and you may not find expected names on the list.

As such, this is the most accurate list known.
