How to Safelist GAC Emails

The Greater Alabama Council utilizes Constant Contact for its mass-email communications.  These communications include, among others, the “Digital Eagle” and “Cub Chatter” emails.  These monthly eNewsletters help keep our families, volunteers, and employees informed about program offerings, news, and updates from the Scouting world.  Despite our best efforts and intentions, sometimes these emails get filtered by email services like Gmail and Yahoo, and even some applications like Thunderbird and Outlook.  Please read on to find out how to make sure you are receiving the eNewsletters and District updates.

Signing up for emails

If you aren’t sure if you have signed up for any of the newsletters, please go to: and select the options you wish to receive.  We recommend that at the very least you subscribe to the “Digital Eagle”, the main newsletter of the Council.  It is published monthly on the first Tuesday of the month at about two o’clock in the afternoon.

Email client settings
