The national Order of the Arrow chairman answers your questions on a regular basis. You may contact the chairman, Mike Hoffman, at @email.
Can a chapter only be defined by its sponsored district, or can a lodge choose to modify the chapter’s boundaries? Also, does there have to be a chapter for each district within the sponsoring council?
I have a question. Does the lodge chief (youth member) get to vote on issues on the council executive board? This is assuming that the nominating committee chooses the lodge chief to be an executive board member.
There are numerous references in our various books and guides that refer to an "active" Arrowman, but no definition of what constitutes "active." Can you give me a definitive answer as to what being “active” entails?
Q. Dear Ray,
Why was the Lenni Lenape word list left out of the new edition of the OA Handbook distributed at NOAC? I have found the list very useful for determining Vigil Indian names.
A. Dear John,
