Council NESA Committees
Council Committee Purpose
The express purpose of NESA is to identify Eagle Scouts and to provide a manpower resource for local councils. The primary objective of local chapters is to guide Eagle Scouts of all ages into service within the local council. With NESA, the BSA has a powerful resource for councils and Eagles far beyond the badge.
