Do you have a great idea that you have always wanted to share with other Arrowmen? Something that is truly revolutionary, something that could change the Order of the Arrow as we know it? The next big idea? Your 2016 region chiefs are looking for you! They are searching for the best and brightest ideas from lodges across the country to share with Arrowmen everywhere. They need your help.

You can be a part of this exciting movement through “The NEXT Factor.” Over the course of the next five months, Arrowmen will be able to submit ideas to the region chiefs. Together, they will develop the ideas into programs that Arrowmen will present to the entire nation at NEXT this August.
