Annual Unit Elections
To become a member of the Order of the Arrow, a Boy Scout or Varsity Scout is chosen by vote of the youth in his unit. This is a unique feature of the Order since the majority of those who select their candidates for this honor are not members of the lodge. However, lodge members in the unit have a vote as well as nonmembers. In this way membership is controlled by the youths in their own units and not by those who are already Arrowmen.
Lowanne Nimat conducts unit elections during the first quarter of each year. Please speak to your Order of the Arrow Troop Representative or Scoutmaster and have them contact the Lowanne Nimat Membership chair for your district to schedule an election for 2014 during this period.
OA High Adventure Patch Set
The Northeast Region OA Leadership Team has created a special set of patches to raise funds for OA High Adventure & Adviser Training scholarships. Our goal is to provide significant assistance to help Arrowmen from the Northeast Region attend OA programs at Philmont, Northern Tier, the Florida Sea Base, and the new program at the Summit Bechtel Reserve.
The blue border patch is available for a $10 donation. The silver border patch is available for a $25 donation. A limited edition gold mylar border patch is available for a donation of $100. The gold mylar patch will also be awarded to each youth Arrowman who attends a program in 2014.
