General Lodge Business Meeting

NOTE: Due to a camp scheduling conflict, the General Lodge Business Meeting will be rescheduled.  Please check back here for the latest information!

Among the many important topics to be covered at the meeting is a proposed change to the Lodge Rules. The proposed change is specific to the timing and notification of the lodge and chapter officer elections.  At the October LEC, the following amendment was approved for vote by the general membership:

  • Replace Article IV, Section F, Subsection a. with new text: "Lodge officers shall be elected at a general lodge meeting held no earlier than 120 days prior to the start of the new term.  The LEC shall set the date on the annual lodge calendar.  Written notice of the meeting must be distributed to all lodge members at least 14 days prior to the meeting."
  • Replace Article VI, Section E, Subsection a. with new text: "Chapter officers shall be elected during the chapter breakout at the general lodge meeting when lodge officer elections take place as referenced in IV.F.a."

The meeting will take place during the LLD weekend, so participants at the event will already be present for the meeting.  If you are looking to attend the weekend, please sign up by clicking here.  Registration closes on Monday, December 8th.

All members of the lodge are permitted to attend the meeting, however only those members who are current on their dues and are under the age of 21 years old will have a vote in any matters brought before the lodge for vote.  

2014 Founders Award Nomination

Introduced at the 1981 National Order of the Arrow Conference, the Founder's Award recognizes Arrowmen who have given outstanding service to their lodge. The award is reserved for an Arrowman who demonstrates that he or she personifies the spirit of selfless service, as advocated by founder E. Urner Goodman and cofounder Carroll A. Edson.

2014 Vigil Honor Nomination

Alertness to the needs of others is the mark of the Vigil Honor. It calls for an individual with an unusual awareness of the possibilities within each situation.

The Vigil Honor is the highest honor that the Order of the Arrow can bestow upon its members for service to lodge, council, and Scouting. Membership cannot be won by a person's conscious endeavors.
