It replaces any previous BSA advancement manuals and previous editions of the Guide to Advancement. Producing the Guide to Advancement has involved many members of the
Boy Scouts of Americas national staff and many volunteer advancement administrators and subject matter experts at all levels from across the country. The result is an improved resource intended to more efficiently meet the needs of those who would most often consult it. Additional information and best practices appear in other official BSA resources such as Advancement News, the National Advancement Program Teams Twitter feed, and the advancement educational presentations released by the National Advancement Program Team. See Orientation and Education Opportunities for Advancement Administrators, 126.96.36.199, for more information on education in advancement policies and procedures. Scouting leaders are encouraged to make full use of these resources but should confirm that updated information has not subsequently been provided. 14 Section 1Introduction 188.8.131.52 Significant Changes

Throughout the Scouting program, we provide a place where the sense of belonging is an outcome of practicing skills, exploring interests, learning values, forming friendships, and enjoying adventure. Advancement is the method by which we promote and encourage the ongoing involvement and commitment that keeps members coming back for more. It works best when it is built into a units program so that simply participating leads to meaningful achievement and recognitionand to a continually improving readiness for more complex experiences. 19 Section 3 Guidelines for Recognition and
