Q/A: Adult Membership Requirements
Q: What are the requirements for an adult to become a
member of the OA? I realize that the rank requirement is not
an issue but do they have to meet the rest of the requirements
that the boys do?
A: The requirements for adult membership are given on page
21 of the "Guide for Officers and Advisers," #34997A, Revised 1999.
In general, the adult qualifications are different from the
youth requirements. Adult selection is based upon their
ability to perform the necessary functions to help the Order
fulfill its purpose, and is not for recognition as an honor.
Selected adult Scouters must be an asset to the Order because
of demonstrated abilities, and must provide a positive role
model for the youth members of the lodge. Read the section of
the guide mentioned above for details.
A copy of the adult requirements can also be found in
Appendix 1 of the
Representative Support Pak.
