OA Unit Election Instructions

PLEASE VISIT OUR NEW WEBSITE HEREExternal Link While Alamo Area Council transitions to the new Mobile Optimized site on March 29th, The ATH pages will be a combination of  both sites. Informational pages and PDF downloads will be at the New Site linked above. Registration for Events  will be here.

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 December 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.
