Outline of the Session:

This session will set forth the precedence for how lodge leaders can effectively find their role, and then be best prepared to serve in that role. The Order of the Arrow has many resources set up for youth Arrowmen to use for their roles and this session helps to outline that. Everyone is encouraged to participate as roles that are not officers are also included. Toward the end of the session Arrowmen can work on a transition plan for the future of their Lodge. Allowing you to work with upper level officers to effectively transition so every Arrowman is benefiting from this session. We look to make sure that all Arrowmen find their role and then lead the “average” Arrowmen into the future as well.
