Conclave Training Initiative Introduced
The Leadership Development subcommittee of the
Order of the Arrow Committee introduced a
new resource for section conclave training at the 2002
National Planning Meeting.
The first ever Conclave Training Initiative materials
were distributed to all section chiefs and section advisers
The purpose of the Conclave Training Initiative is to provide at
least one training session each year for section conclaves to use
to augment their own conclave training. It was created based on a
goal from the 2003-2007 OA Strategic Plan calling for "…an initiative
to enhance learning opportunities at section conclaves".
Each year, the national OA committee will provide a syllabus and
training support material that will be distributed to each section
chief at the December national planning meeting. This process
provides training support to our sections and also serves as a
vehicle to deliver consistent messages on specific training topics
across the nation.
