  1. Who is headed to NOAC 2018?

    Went in 2015 and will be there again this summer!
  2. These aren't the only places where such an accomplishment matters. Outside of the United States I'd argue that "Eagle Scout" is much more known than "Gold Award." Plus, some small mom and pop shop you're trying to get an entry-level job at I would argue is much more likely to know Eagle Scout over Gold Award. And it's a shame it is such.
  3. I agree with what most said, however I think marketing it to the girls that they can become Eagle Scouts is something they rightfully should promote. The gold award doesn't have that universal recognition that comes along with being an eagle. They will inherently be forced to see what the whole program entails as they climb through the ranks. Hopefully they don't bend the rules to get these first female eagles pumped out, but placing the mindset into young girls' heads that they can finally become an eagle scout will be more effective for recruiting than just telling them that boy scouts is letting in girls and get them more interested in the program as a whole.

    Hey everyone! Completed my eagle a few months ago and have continued to be involved as an ASM. Looking forward to checking this place out!

    I was the Troop Guide for my final two years as a youth following my SPL term and have been continuing to push the younger kids towards first class.
