Want to Get Involved?

Are you ready to jump right in and help lead our Order to greatness? There’s plenty of opportunities awaiting you!

Unit Level

OA Reps

Order of the Arrow Representatives are the lifeblood of our movement. They spread the word about events to troops and crews and guide members on the path to Brotherhood. They set positive examples of cheerful service for all in the unit to see and live the Obligation that we all took as Ordeal candidates.

Your troop or crew may or may not have an OA Representative–if it does not, talk with your SPL about becoming one!


Chapter Level

At-Large Chairmen

Do you want to be involved with Boone Trails chapter leadership for the 2021-22 term? Well guess what? We want you to JOIN OUR TEAM! Becoming an At-Large Chairman is one of many ways to help our chapter grow.

Join the Boone Trails Chapter Executive Committee as an At-Large Chairman. Just email Nick Prainito, the Chapter Chief, with the subject, “At-Large Chairman Application” and express your interest.

Ceremonialists

Boone Trails always needs ceremonialists to perform Ordeal and Brotherhood ceremonies at Spring Conclave and Fall Reunion. If you would like to become one, please email Mason Pryor, Second Vice Chief, and he will direct you to a team. We will also be conducting a ceremonialist training for anyone interested on Saturday, January 29!

Elangomats and Nimats

Elangomats guide Ordeal candidates through the four tests and Ordeal Ceremony at both Spring Conclave and Fall Reunion. They also support our candidates on the journey to Brotherhood membership. Nimats serve as guides for our Brotherhood candidates at these events. You would do a great service for our chapter by serving as an elangomat and/or nimat, so consider doing so! Email Luke Hudson, our First Vice Chief, if you are interested.

Extended Elangomats

Boone Trails is looking for a select number of members to serve as “Extended Elangomats” throughout the year and guide our new Ordeal members on the journey to Brotherhood and OA involvement. As an Extended Elangomat you would work closely with a group of new members from our chapter and encourage them to get involved in our events! If you want to serve as an Extended Elangomat, please email Luke Hudson, our First Vice Chief.


Lodge Level

Lodge Committees

Shawnee Lodge has committees ranging from service and ceremonies to communications and nominations. If you would like to serve on a lodge committee, fill out this form!

LEC Meetings

Do you have a burning question or proposal for our lodge? If so, come to a Lodge Executive Committee meeting! At these meetings, OA leaders from across Shawnee Lodge come together to plan and strategize future events and ideas. There are three more LEC’s in the 2021-22 term: January 25, March 22, and August 23.

Only chapter and lodge officers can vote, so if you are not an officer discuss your idea with one and they can propose it during the LEC.


Region Level

Central Region Committee

Our region serves thousands of arrowmen across dozens of lodges and needs help with operations. If you are interested in serving on the region committee, fill out this form.


National Level

OA High Adventure

Nationally run OA high adventure trips to the BSA’s four bases occur each summer. In addition to great sightseeing, the trip will feature service to the high adventure base and an opportunity to meet arrowmen from across the country. More information is available here.
