Life-to-Eagle Process Reminders (and FYIs)

Life-to-Eagle Training … Please spread the word, and keep your eyes open for details on some district-level Life-to-Eagle training that will be provided in four times a year on the second Wednesday of March, June, September & December. Check the district online ( calendar for the location and time of each session. In addition to offering you a chance to ask questions, those sessions will help explain some of the nuances of the ‘new’ Guide to Advancement, and the manner in which NCAC will be implementing that, along with some district-specific stuff as well. Don’t miss it!

Pre-review of Eagle Scout Rank Applications… Council personnel have explained that there are still a surprisingly large number Eagle Scout Rank Applications (ESRAs) that are sent in to Council in ‘less than ideal condition’. Since the staff is so thin there, Council is asking district Eagle Advisers to conduct a preliminary review of the ESRAs – and to initial same – before the unit sends them into Council. This should cut down on the number of ESRAs that need to be modified and re-submitted.

Eagle Notebook Overload!… There is an overabundance of Eagle packages (notebooks, project workbooks, etc.) piling up at the Council office … and they’re begging for people to come retrieve them. Once the unit receives the postcard from National confirming the youth’s advancement to Eagle, those notebooks can (and must) all be retrieved from the Council offices in person by a member of that unit.

An outline of the NCAC process and informational links for the Eagle Scout Application process can be found at
