At NOAC, are we to wear the white sash with our Arrowman Service Award or the Centennial Sash?
Q: Dear Ray,
My council is considering a merger with a neighboring council. I have heard that the BSA has a new policy that requires that lodges merge when councils merge. Is that true, and are there any exceptions to the policy? If so, how would we request one?
Q. Mr. Chairman,
How do you become part of a national committee?
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. Hello, Mr. Capp!
Why can't young Scouters 18-20 be elected/nominated into the OA? How does the OA youth age range effect election to the OA?
