News, ideas, and information for lodge leadership.
Over the course of 2019, the OA will be looking at ways to improve lodges. This initiative is known as Focus 2019 and is comprised of inductions, activations and elections for lodges. Section chiefs from across the nation have divided themselves into committees designed around these three core programs.
