ISCA UPDATE - OA IMAGES WEBSITE UPDATE

If you are an OA collector, you may have noticed or heard that the OA Images (OAImages.com) website is down. We have determined that the site has been hacked and it has been corrupted.

As some of you may know, ISCA acquired OA Images last year and our volunteers have been working to move everything onto a new platform using current state of the art software. We're not quite there yet and due to the fragility and susceptibility of the old/unsupported software, the website crashed.

As we make progress on bringing the OA Images website back on line, we'll let you know here.

In the meantime, you can always use the OA Insignia (OAInsignia.com) website. It's not as good and doesn't have all of the images, but it may work for some of your needs.

The long range plan is to use OA Insignia website for lodge editors to make updates to lodges and use the OA Images website as the "viewing" catalog. All of the data for both websites will draw from the same data file, so changes made on OA Insignia will immediately show up on OA Images.

If you are an editor for a lodge, please continue to update your respective lodge(s). And if you wish to sign up to be an editor, send an email to Mark (mark@scheiderer.com) letting him know what lodge(s) you would like to be approved for.

Frequently Asked Questions


ISCA Roots Trace Back Almost a Half Century

The International Scouting Collectors Association was formed in 2001, when the American Scouting Traders Association (ASTA) and the National Scouting Collectors Society (NSCS) merged to better serve the collecting community. The previous organization were RECOGNIZED WORLDWIDE as leading Scouting memorabilia organizations, devoted to the preservation of the hobby. ISCA will surely follow in their footsteps. ISCA is a not-for-profit corporation with members from all fifty states and from many other Scouting countries. ISCA is operated by volunteer Scouters well experienced in collecting and trading Scouting memorabilia. Our primary purpose is to educate the membership and others regarding Scouting memorabilia and promotion of the ISCA Ethics.

Regional Vice Presidents are members of the ISCA Executive Board. Area Vice Presidents who are appointed by the Regional Chairs see that ISCA Trade-O-Rees are held in their area, seek new memberships, and keep us informed of hobby news and happenings in their area with reports published in the ISCA Journal or by furnishing information to our Column Editors. In addition, you are also represented by ELECTED national officers and an ELECTED Board of Directors.
