About Unit Elections

Owaneco Lodge holds unit elections between the months of November and February. The unit elections process is the method by which Owaneco Lodge inducts new members into our lodge and Scouting's National Honor Society. The election is conducted by 3 youth members of the lodge and an adult adviser.

Schedule Your Unit's Election


 

Adult Recommendations

Once your unit has completed its election, if at least one Scout has been elected troop unit committee may recommend an adult (over 21) to the Order of the Arrow. Selection and induction of an adult into the Order of the Arrow takes place only when the adult's job in Boy Scouting or Varsity Scouting will make Order of the Arrow membership more meaningful for the youth membership. A recommendation does not mean that an adult will be selected to become a candidate. Unlike youth elections, adult recommendations are reviewed by the lodge selection committee and must be approved for the adult to become a candidate. All adult recommendations are to be submitted online using the link below.
