2015 Eagle Scout Yearbook

The National Eagle Scout Association has commissioned Publishing Concepts (PCI) to produce the 2015 annual Eagle Scout publication that will feature the newest Eagle Scouts from the Class of 2015. The current publication entitled "Eagle Scout Yearbook Class of 2015," will contain photos of the newest Eagle Scout Class, and will also include a data CD to help Eagle Scouts stay in touch with each other. Almost 55,000 young men received the Eagle Scout award in 2015, and this project will truly be a celebration of the commitment to the service and leadership of Eagle Scouts everywhere.

For those who earned their Eagle in 2015, be on the lookout for any outreach that PCI might send your way!

2015 Eagle Scout Directory

It is standard practice by universities and other alumni associations to conduct a directory project for alumni about every four years. The last Eagle Scout Directory project was conducted in 2008. Therefore, the National Eagle Scout Association has entered into an agreement with Publishing Concepts Inc. (PCI) to publish a 2015 Eagle Scout Directory. PCI is a well-established publisher of alumni directories whose clients include SMU, University of Colorado, Harvard, and the U.S. Naval Academy. In conjunction with this project, PCI will invite Eagle Scouts to update their information as well as purchase an Eagle Scout directory and/or a NESA membership if they are not already a member.

Updated information collected from Eagle Scouts will be shared with local councils to help them stay in contact with Eagle Scouts who have moved into their council’s borders. Information provided from the 2008 directory proved very helpful to councils in re-establishing contact with Eagle Scouts and led to additional support and volunteers.

As part of the directory project, NESA will be conducting a fun “select the cover” contest to decide which cover will be on the front of the directory. Eagle Scouts will be able to choose from four designs and pick which one they like best. The directory will also contain a unique introduction piece on the importance of Eagle Scouts to our country.

For all those that earned their Eagle Scout, be on the lookout for any outreach that PCI might send your way.
