Questions and Comments
The National Order of the Arrow Web Site
focuses mainly on national programs and
publications, not on local lodge events or operations. If you have questions
about the Order of the Arrow, you should first
try to get an answer locally from
your own lodge or chapter chief
or adviser. If you do not know who they are, you can
contact your local
council service center to find out. Many questions
we receive (about such concerns as lodge dues, unit election deadlines,
conclave dates, lodge newsletter mailings, and so on)
can only be answered by the specific local lodge involved, so we can not help
you with them.
For other questions, you should first look in the various publications of
the OA, the Operation Updates, and the National
Bulletin. Various questions
and answers of common interest are listed on the Frequently
Asked Questions page and in the
Ask the Chairman Feature.
Membership Renewal/Record Questions
This Ask the Chairman question and answer should answer questions from
past Arrowman looking for membership renewal and records.
For Questions not Answered in the List Above
If your questions are not answered in the above
publications, you should next try to get an answer locally from your own lodge
chief or adviser, chapter chief or adviser, or the lodge staff adviser.If you are unable to find an answer from these sources, you may send your
question to email@example.com.
Because this site is operated by volunteers, under the authority of the National
Order of the Arrow Committee, it may take several weeks to
respond to your question, so please be patient. Due to the volume
of email received, we may not be able to respond directly to
every question sent to us.
Policy questions that need an immediate response should be directed to the
National Order of the Arrow Office by phone at 972-580-2438.
Please do not send emails asking when an expected mailing will go out from
the National OA Office. The mailing schedule is controlled
by the national
office, not the web site. When an item has been mailed, it is added to
the What's Been Mailed page.
