Ask the Chairman - Will there be a centennial edition of the OA Handbook?

Q. Ray,
I have made a display of all OA handbooks (different covers) from 1948 to present day. There has been a handbook to celebrate several anniversaries - is there a centennial edition of the OA  handbook planned?


A. Frank,
You will be delighted to know that there will be a centennial version of the handbook coming out! It will be released at the 2015 NOAC. They will be given in the registration packet to all NOAC participants and we will have plenty on sale, too. After NOAC, we anticipate them to be  available through your local Scout shop by the end of August.

There is also a discussion as of the writing of this article of a commemorative leather bound  edition of the handbook. Look for more information when merchandise pre-orders begin as well in the NOAC trading post.
