2019 OA Unit Election Instructions

The time is upon us to elect new members into the Order of the Arrow (OA).  

Troop Unit Elections kick off on October 1, 2018 and will end on July 31, 2019.  Crew and Ship Unit Elections kickoff on February 1, 2019 and end on July 31, 2019. We encourage you to schedule your election prior to the Council Wide Campout so your unit’s Candidates can participate in the OA Call-out Ceremony at Bear Creek Saturday night, but we can also accommodate your unit right up through Bear Creek Summer Camp.

There are many advantages to holding an election which includes: recognizing “honor” scouts, encouraging youth participation, leadership training, and providing another motivation to go camping and earn first class.  

For details on qualifications (youth and adult), procedures, and more detailed information, please download the Unit Elections Letter HERE.
