Exciting new things are planned for the OA this year! Don’t miss out on these great opportunities … make sure you stay connected by paying your annual dues!
Why should I pay dues? Dues keep you listed as an active member of Wenasa Quenhotan Lodge. Only active members will receive emailed/paper mailed information and newsletters, as well as count towards our lodge membership list. You must also be dues-paying in order to attend our top-quality OA events throughout the year, such as Winter Banquet and Spring Fellowship, as well as other great opportunities that the OA can offer.
What is the purpose of dues? Dues help keep our lodge operating financially. The money you pay for dues goes towards many things – including publications, annual re-charter fees, inductions, service projects, and more. All of these costs help ensure that our Lodge Leadership is able to put on the best events that we can, and thus serve you better as a member.
How can I get involved more in the OA? There are many ways to get involved, and more information is always available on our lodge website. The best way to get involved, however, is to come to our exciting events – details are included in our newsletter The Arrow as well as online. Of course, the first step is to pay your dues. You can pay online (link above) or fill out the form below and mail it to the W.D. Boyce Council Service Center.
All members of Wenasa Quenhotan are required to be currently registered members of the BSA, and also must have paid their annual OA lodge membership dues in order to attend lodge functions.
