In just a few weeks, starting January 1, 2016, the requirements used for Boy Scout rank advancement will change. In short, after January 1
boys may continue to work toward their current rank using the previous requirements, but once they advance or January 1, 2017 rolls around – they must use the new requirements.

More details are available from this flyer produced by National Council…
