Order of the Arrow
The National Order of the Arrow has announced that beginning February 1, 2019, unit elections will be permitted in Scouts BSA, Venturing and Sea Scout units.
For those not familiar, the Order of the Arrow is the Boy Scouts of America’s Honor Society. Members are accomplished outdoorsmen, selfless leaders and are elected by the Scouts in their troop. Previous to this announcement, youth in Venturing and Sea Scout units were not eligible to be elected.
With this change, female youth members will be eligible to be elected for the first time. Adult female leaders were already eligible and our council’s lodge has many outstanding female adult Order of the Arrow members.
