Slight Delay In Printing Eagle Scout Credentials
Temporary COVID-19 Related Delay in Printing New Eagle Scout Credentials

We received notice yesterday that there is a temporary fulfillment request delay for Eagle Scout credentials.

Due to COVID-19 and many employees at the National Distribution Center being unable to work until Stay at Home orders are lifted, Eagle credentials will not be printed at the present time.

Please be assured that Eagle applications will be processed as usual without delay, but the credentials; certificate, card, and letter will be delayed.

The delay time is dependent upon when the State of NC and Mecklenburg County lift their respective Stay at Home Orders. The National Distribution Center (NDC) team is on stand-by and will be ready to get back to work and plugging away at processing Eagle Scout credentials as soon as it is safe to do so. They thank you for your patience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
