OA Unit Representative Program


The Order of the Arrow unit representative is a youth liaison serving between the local OA lodge or chapter and their unit. In their unit, they help meet the needs of the unit and will serve as a communication and programmatic link to and from Arrowmen, adult leaders and Scouts who are not presently members of the OA. They will do this in a fashion that strengthens the mission of the lodge, purpose of the OA, and the mission of the Boy Scouts of America. By setting a good example, they will enhance the image of the OA as a service arm to their unit.

The OA Unit Representative Support Pack provides the information that will help these representatives  understand their dual roles in their unit and in the Order of the Arrow. Included in this Pack is a collection of Frequently Asked Questions that can be used as a ready reference to answer questions that have already been addressed. In addition, the official job description of the unit representative has been included so that unit representatives, their advisers and their unit leaders will have a better understanding of their respective responsibilities.
