1951 National Planning Meeting

1951 National Conference Planning Meeting

The National OA Committee and Area Chiefs from around the nation gathered at Miami University at Oxford, Ohio for the second National Planning Meeting. This was the only National Planning Meeting where the Area Chiefs did not elect the next Conference Chief. National Conference Chief James R. Montgomery of Pellissippi Lodge, Knoxville, Tennessee had been elected at the 1950 NOAC. Following the meeting the OA actively promoted that “active youth participation would be the real National Meeting highlight…” Conference Chiefs would be running the show at the 1952 NOAC.
