Egwa Code of Conduct, and Medical Forms
Greetings, Egwa brothers.
The Lodge is instituting a couple new policies that you need to be aware of;
To comply with HIPA and Federal regulations we will not be keeping any medical forms beyond the event where they are turned in. In practice this means that you will need to bring a copy to each and every Lodge event. After each event the forms will be securely shredded. This is to comply with Federal regulations and to protect your privacy and confidentiality. Identity theft has become such a large problem it's just a good idea, and has us in compliance with Federal regulations.
For our weekend events we only require Parts A and B which do not require a physical or a doctor's signature.
At the February 2013 LEC the Lodge adopted a Code of Conduct.
Effective as of that LEC all participants in any of our activities are expected to follow and comply with this Code. It is based on the NOAC Code of Conduct. Please read it over and become familiar with it.
in Cheerful Service,
Want to Go
Tyler and the Jamboree are still taking Staff Members to help with the “Messengers of Peace Day of Service” at Jamboree. Cost for staff ages 16–25 years: only $425! This is a day of community service opportunity for the participants of each sub camp. This event will be facilitated by the Order of the Arrow and has been aligned with the world-wide Scouting initiative entitled “Messengers of Peace”.
Projects have been pre-screened and vetted to ensure that they fit the capability of the participants. All unit leaders and selected staff will accompany the youth participants on this experience. Service projects will be performed in selected West Virginia communities near the Summit, and in the National Park Service land adjacent to the Summit. For more information about Staff Opportunities, see http://event.oa-bsa.org/events/jambo2013/index.html.
