Q/A: Venturing Crew Elections

Q: There has been some disagreement as to whether or not Venturing Crews can have OA elections and elect candidates for OA membership. Some people in our lodge say they can, while our Lodge Adviser says they can not. Can you please clear this up for us?

A: Your lodge adviser is correct. Order of the Arrow elections can be held in Boy Scout Troops and Varsity Scout Teams only.
