********************REGISTRATION DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 7TH********************
Do you possess the dedication, time and energy to be in a youth leadership position within the Lodge?
The Order of the Arrow is a brotherhood of Scout campers led and run by youth leadership and guided by adult advisers. Being a Lodge Officer will teach you a great deal about yourself and how well you can set your own goals and work to achieve them.
Take a moment to review the job description for each office which can be found in the Lodge Operating Procedures.
The process for election is very simple. On Saturday of Fall Reunion, the general meeting of the Lodge will be opened. Candidates for a lodge position must submit a completed Petition To Election To Lodge Office signed by their parent(s) (if under eighteen), their Chapter Adviser, their primary unit leader, and the Lodge Adviser. The petition is due the Saturday of Fall Reunion one hour prior to the officer candidate forum to the Lodge Advisor or his designee. Each candidate will be given a few minutes to speak and tell the Lodge members present why they feel they should be elected. The same process is followed for the offices of Lodge Chief, Executive Vice Chief, Vice Chief of Program, Vice Chief of Inductions, Treasurer, Secretary. More detail on the election process can ve found in the Lodge Rules.
New Lodge Officers will recieve training in the duties of their respective office. No officer is alone in their leadership; there are many adult advisers as well as past officers who are willing and able to help.
Any youth (under 21) in the Lodge can be a Lodge officer.
