OA electionsOA elections - Tuesday, January 27, 2015

OA elections

It's time to hold the Northwest Chapter’s annual Troop elections for new Order of the Arrow Candidates.

These need to be completed by Friday April 10th!  To schedule your Troop’s  OA Election, contact Northwest Chapter Vice-Chief of Membership at the next Chapter meeting.

Your Troop will need to provide the election team with a list of those candidates who are eligible under OA rules, so please talk with us if you are uncertain about any details.

 Each Troop must have its election conducted by OA Members from outside its own Troop, so we also ask each Troop to contact Vice-Chief of Membership to volunteer to conduct an election for another Troop.
