Matt Dukeman selected as new OA Team Specialist
On September 15, Matt Dukeman began his service as the Order of the Arrow's fifth
OA Specialist. Dukeman is responsible for working with the following national subcommittees:
Development, Region and Section Operations, Outdoor Adventures, and Recognition,
Awards, History and Preservation. "I believe Matt is a great addition to the national
staff. He has a great OA background that will help him in his new assignment," said
Clyde Mayer, OA director.
A former director of the OA Trail Crew program, Dukeman joins the OA staff from
the Project Arrow department of the National Council where he worked as a grant
writer and developed donor reports. Dukeman began his Scouting career as a district
executive in the Cascade Pacific Council in Portland, OR. He also served as the
Inland Northwest Council's development director. Mayer said that he is "delighted"
to have Dukeman join the OA staff because "Matt is a young guy who will bring a
lot of energy and enthusiasm to the program."
Be sure to congratulate Matt when you see him traveling around the nation.
