As of January 1, 2016, the National office has issued a new printing of the Eagle Application. None of the requirements have changed, but the format of the second page does have a slight change. Please make sure you are using the most up-to-date application and workbook so your information is correct and current.
Eagle Packet update:
The Eagle Packet has been updated. If you have had the application, packet and workbook for a while, be sure to get back on the Council Website (wccbsa.org, ‘Support’, then ‘Eagle Information’) and print off / use the most current ones.
