The national Order of the Arrow chairman answers your questions on a regular basis. You may contact the chairman, Mike Hoffman, at @email.
Now that the 100th anniversaries of the BSA and OA have passed, will the Order of the Arrow return to hosting national conferences every two years?
We have a "lone scout", the only remaining young man in his troop. Long story short, he would like to have the opportunity for OA, but his troop cannot do an election. We just found this out as he was one of the kids that went to the Jamboree from our council.
Q. I recently had a conversation with an OA chapter adviser about an Ordeal member who was denied taking part in the Brotherhood Ceremony because he had not attended chapter meetings during the 10 months of service.
Has there ever been an OA membership given posthumously for an adult leader?
Q. Greetings Ray,
There seems to be the impression among members of our lodge that, due to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), we must have all of our OA ceremony rings handicap accessible.
I am the training chairman for my lodge. I am looking for resources that might help me to develop a series of continual training sessions for our lodge executive committee. What resources are available to help with this project?
