Earlier this year, the National Order of the Arrow Committee approved a change to the OA’s membership policy, permitting unit elections in Scouts BSA, Venturing, and Sea Scout units. These changes will take effect on February 1, 2019.
Unit elections can be the first interaction a unit or Scout may have with their local lodge, so they are an important facet of becoming a High Performing Lodge.
The Northeast Region held the first ever High Performing Lodge Summit, focused on how to implement simple tools and strategies for lodges to be classified as high performing.
In the summer of 2019, Arrowmen from across the nation will be given the opportunity to take part in an incredible training summit known as the National Scouting Historian Summit which will take place at the National Scouting Museum, located at the Philmont Scout Ranch.
