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 first 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.
