Q: Hi Mike,

I am the manager of a Scout shop for the Supply Group located in Ohio. One of my customers has asked me to find out how to obtain an OA associate section adviser patch. He has served in this position previously and needs a copy for his personal display. Any information you could provide would be appreciated. Thanks.


A: Malcolm,

The Order of the Arrow team at the BSA’s national office can assist you in acquiring the patches you need. Section adviser and associate section adviser patches are not stocked by the Supply Group, nor do we intend to stock them with the Supply Group in the future. You can contact Debbie Dyson at @email for assistance.  

I hope this helps! Thanks for doing what you do!
