Alumni Award Requirements
Scouting Alumni Association
The Scouting Alumni Association welcomes everyone positively and personally impacted by the Boy Scouts of America—former Scouts, family members of Scouts past and present, volunteers past and present, and the millions of Americans who benefit from Scouting in their communities every day—to join today. Enjoy the member benefits and support the good work that the BSA continues in its second century.
Membership costs $35 annually. Benefits include the following:
- Packet sent upon joining containing an embossed affiliation card, lapel pin, luggage tag, and window cling.
- Quarterly electronic newsletter Alumni Alive! It’s a popular, convenient update of all the great happenings within Scouting today.
- Cell phone ring tones of 10 bugle calls. This is fun! Watch for people who think “Reveille” requires a salute!
- Free one-year membership to the National Scouting Museum. This world-class museum is located in Irving, Texas, across the street from the BSA national office. Membership includes access to the museum’s quarterly newsletter, Bridges & Trails.
- One-time discount on a purchase from BSA Supply Group. You can purchase online at Scoutstuff.org or in person at a Scout shop at your local council service center.
- And more coming soon.
We’re inviting our alumni to come back, make a new connection, and get involved with Scouting programs once again. At www.BSAalumni.org, Scouting alumni will be able to find friends and mentors, add photos and stories to the growing BSA 100th Anniversary Online Scrapbook, and more!
Anyone who is, or ever has been, active with the BSA is invited — from former Scouts to the millions of Scouting supporters across America.
National Eagle Scout Association
The purpose of the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) is to identify Eagle Scouts and provide a manpower resource for local councils. NESA is young men searching for dynamic and challenging leadership roles. NESA is older Eagle Scouts who desire using their efforts and influence toward forming the kind of young men America needs for leadership. The objective of NESA is to serve—to serve Eagle Scouts and through them, the entire movement of Scouting.
The Pennsylvania Dutch Council has a local NESA Chapter of Eagle Scouts. The goal of the Pennsylvania Dutch Council NESA Chapter is simple, to bring the power of Eagle Scout leadership to support Scouting in our Council. As you know, Eagle Scouts represent Scouting’s finest, and we want to draw from this group of talented men. It is Scouting’s current leadership, largely at the council level, that will determine the future of our movement.
