The national Order of the Arrow chairman answers your questions on a regular basis. You may contact the chairman, Mike Hoffman, at @email.
Can non-OA Adult Leaders attend OA Camping Functions (e.g. lodge events, conclave, etc)?
Q. Mr. Capp,
I have a few questions about the Vigil selection process that you could help me better understand.
Q. Dear Ray,
Why was the Lenni Lenape word list left out of the new edition of the OA Handbook distributed at NOAC? I have found the list very useful for determining Vigil Indian names.
A. Dear John,
If a person is selected for the Vigil Honor by the Vigil nominating committee but passes away before they are called out or they complete the Vigil induction, are they considered a Vigil Honor member? If not, can the lodge still recognize them as Vigil?
Outside of the Order of the Arrow, does the national chief (or national vice chief for that matter) have any other responsibilities within the BSA?
