Lodge Officer Positions Descriptions
The success of an OA Lodge is dependent on active and engaged Officers. Each Officer will have an experienced Adult Adviser assigned to them to work with them (and their team).
Advisers in the OA are experienced Scouters who enjoy volunteering their time to mentor motivated Arrowmen. Advisers train, coach, and guide their Officers to complete assigned duties that exceed what is normally asked of Young Scouts in high school or college.
Lodge Officers are expected to diligently work with their Adviser, Their Fellow Officers, Committee Members, and with other Arrowmen.
Service as a Lodge Officer is not for everyone. Lodge Officers are expected to be able to budget their time between Family, Religious, School, Sports, Clubs, and other responsibilities with what is required of them as a Lodge Officer.
Many great Officers have served with distinction and managed their other responsibilities well, but some have not, remember this program is youth lead and needs great Officers to run it.
Since the effective operation of the Lodge depends on each Lodge Officer, any Officer who finds that they cannot keep up with the duties or balance these duties with other commitments and obligations will be expected to resign or they will be removed from office.
Each Lodge Officer is expected to do the following along with their Elected Position Description:
Attend ALL scheduled Lodge events and the Section Conclave, and NOAC.
Attend ALL scheduled Lodge LEC Meetings.
Attend ANY Council Events the Lodge has been asked to help with.
Officers are expected to attend and participate in a limited number of other meetings, Trainings (Section/Region/National), planning sessions, and special projects throughout the lodge year, especially throughout the fall of the current year as we plan the new year. Dates for these meetings will be set by the LEC.
Regularly communicate with their adviser, committee, and other officers throughout the year. (Following YPT)
