Your council must have everything backwards for allowing people like that to continue in their positions. Best wishes to you and your son. I hope everything turns out ok, you've certainly been through much more than anybody should be expected to put up with.

The Members of the EBOR do not have to be registered in scouting according to the Guidelines for the EBOR.

WHat Are questions I ask?
Did you have fun in scouting? And Why the answer you gave.
How do you plan on giving back to scouting if you pass this BOR?
WHat have you gotten out of scoutng?
What cannot be asked. What did you do for * Merit Badge
Tie * Knot
If you go to Eagle Scout.org there is a whole list of EBOR questions that are appropriate.

However, I'm confused about the whole thing since the DE said the guy shouldn't have been involved. Irregardless, he's the one that set the date for 5/15. He said he would be there, the sheriff, another guy (don't know his name but a friend whom he also invited to become a unit committee member), and the former SM that gave our son a hard time about going to college back in 2005. Our son is ok with who's going to be there. I have mixed feelings....But there is no reason for him NOT to get approved. He'll be dressed appropriately and he's comfortable answering questions.
Wished one of you guys lived nearby, so you could sit in with him!

I'll stay outside with the Council advancement member and have a chat. We all need a trip to FLA.
He'll do fine no matter who is on the board.

Officially, there is no limit to how many board members the boy can request/invite. However, I probably would not stir up the situation more by trying to outnumber the ones already included.
The sheriff and unit committee member are friends of the guy we've had problems with, but I hope everyone will be professional. Guess we'll find out.
