Adult Recommendations

Once your unit has completed their election, if at least one Scout has been elected the unit committee may recommend a adult (over 21) to the Order of the Arrow. Selection and induction into the Order of an adult Scouter 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 with be submitted online this year.
