Northeast Region Chief
Ed Lynes, returns to Iowa State, the same location of his first national conference in 1998, as the 2004 Northeast Region Chief.
“To come back here six years later as a national officer is a truly incredible feeling. The fact that at this conference I get to be an officer at the same place I started, it brings back all those memories.”
Ed, 19, was inducted into Moswetuset Lodge in May of 1998. Since then, he has been a two term Lodge Chief and a Section Vice Chief. Most recently, he served as Section NE-1A Chief before being elected Region Chief.
During his years in Scouting, he has earned the Eagle Scout Rank and received the Vigil Honor and Founder’s Award.
Ed is a student at Boston University, majoring in English. He enjoys music, swimming, film, and the Boston Red Sox.
“Through the OA, I’ve learned so much in terms of how to lead an organization,” he noted, “and often find myself applying this knowledge at school, in my community, and in the other organizations I’m involved with.”
In addition to helping him grow as a leader, the OA has given Ed the unique opportunity to build many lifelong friendships.
Finally, Ed anticipates a great 2004 conference and looks forward to meeting as many Arrowmen as possible from across the country.
