The National Order of the Arrow Committee today approved some exciting updates to Scouting’s national honor society.
Beginning Feb. 1, 2019, unit elections will be permitted in Scouts BSA troops, Venturing crews and Sea Scout ships. Previously, elections only were for Boy Scout troops.
The Order of the Arrow, or OA, has welcomed female leaders since 1988. Today’s announcement means women and girls who are under 21 will be eligible for election into the service-minded society as well.
