Eagle Scout Yearbook & Directory FAQ
1. I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for NESA. Is this a legitimate project, or is it a scam?
We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new Yearbook. PCI is a company located in Dallas, TX that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation. This project allows NESA to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our Eagles and how we can better serve you and future Eagles.
2. Does NESA benefit from this at all?
Yes, in a few different ways:
a. Updated Information – Allows us to effectively communicate with and engage Eagles
b. Legacy – Preserves the history of our organization
c. Revenue – Generate revenue for NESA programs
d. Pride – Wearing apparel shows support and love for our organization
3. How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?
The National Eagle Scout Association has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
a. The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by the National Eagle Scout Association for the publication of the Yearbook and/or Directory will be held confidential by PCI, except to the extent that they are utilized in, or in the preparation of, the Yearbook and/or Directory and except as required by court order or law.
b. The Yearbook and/or Directory will be made available only to Eagle Scouts who earned their Eagle status in 2019. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to the National Eagle Scout Association any and all electronic files that have been supplied by the National Eagle Scout Association or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Yearbook and/or Directory.
4. I would like to verify and update my information. How may I do this?

The representative will verify all the information we have on file for you and make any updates where needed. One of the numbers for NESA is 855-556-3096.
