The purpose of the Conclave Training Initiative (CTI) is to provide at least one training session each year for sections to use to augment their own conclave training. CTI was created based on a goal from the 2003-2007 OA Strategic Plan calling for "...an initiative to enhance learning opportunities at section conclaves."
Each year, at camps across the United States, Arrowmen gather for section conclaves: weekends of fun, fellowship and training. Though the needs of each section and lodge are different, the National OA Committee desired a way to promote increased quality of conclave trainings, as well as a uniformity of presentations regarding certain important topics, such as the themes of national OA conferences. It was out of this desire to provide support for training programs that the Conclave Training Initiative (CTI) was created. By delivering training with a consistent message, useful information and a creative approach, CTI aims to enhance the quality of training at conclave, with session that cover topics ranging from Cub Scouting to the Journey to Excellence program. The CTI team encourages you to take advantage of these truly unique and informative sessions by incorporating them into your conclave training plan.
