Hello Eagle Scouts,
Change is in the air as we transition from summer Scouting to fall Scouting. Girls have been joining Cub Scouts in significant numbers and will be eligible to join Boy Scouts in early 2019. Concurrently, the top chartered organization in Scouting will no longer be chartering units after 2019. These two major shifts in Scouting are causing councils, and in particular San Diego to reevaluate who they are and how they are serving youth. What can we as ESAA members do to adapt to these changes? The first thing we can do is maximize our effort for current Scouts to make Eagle Scout. We want to continue to make serving on Eagle Boards a top priority and make sure there is no time lag in Scouts making Eagle. Communicate that we are welcoming girls to all facets of Scouting and how it will work in practice. What are the lifetime benefits of being an Eagle Scout and why should boys and girls work so hard to achieve it? It is our duty and our calling to communicate this message and I hope all ESAA members will join me in these efforts.

The purpose of the San Diego - Imperial Council Eagle Scout Alumni Association (ESAA) is to support and enlarge the success of the Boy Scout movement and build fellowship among adult Eagles in San Diego and Imperial Counties. The ESAA achieves this purpose, by recruiting as many adult Eagle Scouts as possible to become Scouting volunteers, by supporting activities within the Council that promote the Scouts' advancement along the Trail to Eagle and by giving recognition to the young men who earn the rank of Eagle Scout.
