Adults who wish to become members of the Order of the Arrow must first be nominated by their Troop Committee. Each year, upon holding a troop election for youth candidates that results in at least one youth candidate being elected, the unit committee may nominate registered unit adults (age 21 or over) to the lodge adult selection committee.  The number of adults nominated can be no more than one-third of the number of youth candidates elected, rounded up where the number of youth candidates is not a multiple of three. In addition to the one-third limit, the unit committee may nominate the currently-serving unit leader (but not assistant leaders), as long as he or she has served as unit leader for at least the previous 12 months. Recommendations of the adult selection committee, with the approval of the Scout executive, serving as Supreme Chief of the Fire, will be candidates for induction, provided all conditions are fulfilled. The form can be found under Resources->Forms or by clicking here.


Adults must meet the same camping requirements as youth to be considered for membership.  Approved adults will be notified in writing of their approval and will be sent a registration form.  Registration cannot occur for an adult until the approval is received.  All adult nomination forms are due to the Chapter Adviser no later than April 30, 2016.
