Ask the Chairman - Will there be a centennial edition of the OA Handbook?

Q. Ray,
I have made a display of all OA handbooks (different covers) from 1948 to present day. There has been a handbook to celebrate several anniversaries - is there a centennial edition of the OA  handbook planned?

Ask the Chairman - How can I be involved in the Order’s centennial celebration outside of NOAC?

Q. I know registration for the 2015 National Order of the Arrow Conference is at capacity and the likelihood of me attending NOAC is very slim at this point. Therefore, what else can I do to be part of the 100th anniversary of the OA?
