There is some confusion about the difference between these organizations. They each provide different services to Eagle Scouts. The objective of NESA is to serve—to serve Eagle Scouts and through them, the entire movement of Scouting.
NESA Pittsburgh is chartered by the Laurel Highlands Council and works to advance scouting at the local level with our troops, districts and the Laurel Highlands Council. Both organizations have separate dues and we encourage you to join both, but we really need you to join NESA Pittsburgh so we can help scouting grow in western PA and through the Laurel Highlands Council.
Membership is free for Eagles 25 and younger, $25 for a yearly membership or $290 for a Lifetime member.
