Structure of the Order of the Arrow in the Greater New York Councils

TO: Lodge Chiefs and Lodge Advisers of Aquehongian, Man-A-Hattin, Ranachqua, Shu-Shu-Gah and Suanhacky Lodges
FROM: Charles E. Rosser, Scout Executive and Supreme Chief of the Fire
CC: Omer S. J. Williams, GNYC Camping Committee Chairman GNYC Board of Directors GNYC Staff Donald J. Cunningham, GNYC OA Five-Lodge Coordinator Colin R. Pinnavaia, Past Lodge Adviser, Shu-Shu-Gah Lodge David A. Borchard, Deputy Regional Director, Northeast Region Section NE-2B OA Key Three Northeast Region OA Key Three National OA Key Three
SUBJECT: Structure of the Order of the Arrow in the Greater New York Councils
DATE: August 30, 2012

After careful consideration over the course of many months, I have decided that combining the councils’ five Order of the Arrow lodges into a single lodge will allow the OA to better fulfill the Mission of the Lodge and the Purpose of the Order of the Arrow. The change will also result in a stronger program for the youth in GNYC and in closer alignment between the activities of the OA and the councils’ strategic priorities as set forth in the recently adopted Strategic Plan. Ultimately, I envision a combined lodge that rivals the best in the country and attracts the top leadership, both youth and adult, that the BSA has to offer.
