Unit Leaders, the Order of the Arrow is at your Service!

Order of the Arrow Unit Elections

Once each year (calendar year), a chartered Boy Scout Troop or Varsity Team may hold a unit election to elect youth members of their troop or team to become members of the Order of the Arrow. (Both youth and adult Scouts and Scouters can become members of the OA, but only youth members are elected. Assistant Scoutmasters under the age of 21 are considered youth members for OA purposes). New members are voted on by every youth member of the troop present at the election - not just the OA members (thereby insuring that Scouts are elected mostly by people who are not OA members). A unit election team, trained in the latest OA election policies, will visit a regular troop meeting at the Scoutmaster’s invitation to conduct the election.

Click Here for a one-page flyer that briefly explains unit elections and provides contact information for requesting a unit election. This flyer will be distributed by mail to unit leaders and made available in the Program Center at the VSC.

To assist unit leaders the Lodge has prepared The Unit Leader’s Guide to Order of the Arrow Unit Elections. It provides unit leaders with the introductory information they need to be prepared for their unit election. Here's the Adult Candidate Nomination Form excerpted from the above guide.

Ordeals

The Ordeal is a weekend experience in which those elected or selected learn about the customs and traditions of the Order of the Arrow and undertake a spiritual journey to discover the true meanings of leadership, service and the Brotherhood of Scouting. As a Unit Leader you can help prepare those candidates in your Troop. Here's a letter from our Lodge Chief outlining some of the steps you can take to help your Scouts. Also don't forget to check out the Candidates page and encourage your Troop's candidates to do likewise.

If the information above does not answer your questions please don't hesitate to contact your Chapter Adviser



Troop Rep PatchOA Troop / Team Representative Program

To help promote communication between individual units and the Order of the Arrow lodge that serves them, the position of O.A. Troop/Team Representative was devised. This position of responsibility counts toward rank advancement, and will help you and your unit learn more about what Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge is up to and how their service is making a positive impact on the council's program.

Camping Promotion

Annually, the Order of the Arrow promotes camping to units in the Atlanta Area Council. These range from presentations at Council events and district roundtables, to camping presentations at individual units and the Lodge's Where to go Camping Guide.
