Ask the Chairman
My friend is being nominated for an award. We would like to put some of her
accomplishments in the OA, but aren’t sure who to get the records from.
Thank you for your assistance
Thank you for your note.
Unfortunately, the national Order of the Arrow office in Dallas does not keep
historic council membership records of the nature you seek.
These are maintained at different levels of historic accuracy by the local
council offices, lodge historians, and often published in an annual "Planbook"
which many lodges use both as a directory for members AND as a way to keep up
with which members have taken on which duties to achieve the mission . Please
contact your lodge or council office specifically the lodge adviser and the
lodge staff adviser to see if they can help you dig the historical information
you are seeking to help honor your friend.
Let me also applaud your support of your friend to see help with she is
nomination. All over the country, generous people, such as yourself work hard to
see that our finest volunteers are recognized for their support of Scouting.
What you are doing is very important. Thank you.
All my best to you and your friend in your Scouting careers!
