Aside from Christmas, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Election season is when Scouts across the council are recognized as outstanding examples of the Scout Oath and Scout Law and elected by their peers to join our Order. That process starts when OA Unit Representatives and unit leaders schedule a unit election. This year we’re using a new module in OA Lodgemaster to make the election more efficient and improved communication throughout the process.
Unit leader emails
Unit leaders (Scoutmaster, Crew Advisor, Skipper) and Committee Chairs should have receive at least one (possibly more) email about scheduling a unit election. The email also contains information about temporary COVID-related requirement changes, the election process and the Chapter Chief and Advisor to contact with questions. The first emails were sent the first week of February 2021.
If you have NOT received any emails about unitl elections, please contact your Chapter Chief to make certain that we have the correct information for your unit. You may also send the name of the unit adult leaders, their phone numbers and email addresses, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Do this as soon as possible so elections can be scheduled early.
The strength of Wenasa Quenhotan lodge depends on EVERY unit having the opportunity to elect new members. Do your part to keep our lodge strong and growing.
All elections MUST be completed and all adult nominations submitted by May 15, 2021. No exceptions!
