Unit, Chapter, and Lodge Support Resources
The National Order of the Arrow Committee is committed
to supporting the local endeavors of units, chapters, and lodges. Use these
suggested ideas to spark creativity on your unique journey to Quality Lodge recognition.
Adviser Minutes - Insights from Around the Nation
Advisers often give a short "food for thought" message at the end of
meetings. These adviser minutes can be
inspirational, thought-provoking, or informative. Advisers around the country
submitted these minutes that they've used,
and they hope you can benefit from them, too.
Best Practices - Your Ideas from Around the Nation
These ideas were submitted by Arrowmen across the country who have benefited
from both years of experience and trial and error. By sharing these
Arrowmen hope to share the wisdom they have gained over the ages. The National Order
of the Arrow Committee hopes other lodges can benefit from this
repository of ideas
that have proven successful for lodges in the past.
