The National Catholic Committee on Scouting (NCCS) is a Church committee of concerned Catholic Laity and Clergy, which is advisory to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and relates to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) through its Bishop Liaison with the NCCS.

NCCS is a single, national committee consisting of two representatives from each diocese and eparchy in the United States: the diocesan/eparchial Scout chair and the diocesan/eparchial Scout chaplain. NCCS Chaplains are encouraged to become certified.

From this membership, NCCS leadership is recruited, selected, and appointed to an Executive Board and an Advisory Board. A National Chairperson and a National Chaplain are chosen through a national election. Leadership and membership of NCCS Standing Committees is selected through a nomination process.

NCCS leadership is governed by our bylaws and operations are guided by our NCCS Handbook of Operating Procedures.
