The annual end of year gathering of Section Chiefs took place in Dallas, Texas and although there was no NOAC to plan, there were two National programs of emphasis.
The first was Philbreak, a spring week at Philmont to help with conservation efforts after fires destroyed forestland in Philmont. The second event to plan was the first Indian Summer.
Nick Digirolamo, Seminole Lodge, Tampa, Florida was elected National Chief and Rich Moore of Ku-Ni-Eh Lodge, Cincinnati, Ohio was elected National Vice Chief. Region Chiefs elected were: Adam Enerson – Central Region, Ian Pinnavaia – Northeast Region, Mathew Griffis – Western Region and Frank McMillan – Southern Region.
