It All Started Right Here

On April 19, 1925, a group of ten Eagle Scouts from the San Francisco Council gathered in the office of Scout Exec Raymond O Hanson. The purpose of the meeting was to create an organization which would hold the interest of older scouts and could serve as an additional incentive for others to attain the rank of Eagle Scout. The Knights of Dunamis served as a service organization for local Scout councils and also hosted occasional social events. At the Knight’s peak they had 110 chapters across the United States. In 1972 the Knights of Dunamis were merged into the BSA and became the National Eagle Scout Association.

About NESA

The National Eagle Scout Association (NESA, pronounced nee sah) helps Eagle Scouts stay in touch with Scouting and hear positive stories about how Scouting transforms the lives of youth through developing their leadership skills, character, citizenship, and physical fitness.

NESA is also an outlet for alumni to network and collaborate with one another, which may include increasing business connections and participating in service to the BSA or other organizations.
