Some of the responsibilities of being a Section Officer are listed below. If you are interested in becoming a Section Officer, please contact us using the Contact Us tab.
· Officers of Section C-6B are required to attend all Section Council of Chiefs meetings, officer meetings, the annual Section Conclave, the Central Region Section Officers Seminar (SOS) and the National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC if applicable).
· The Section Chief is expected to attend the National Order of the Arrow Planning meeting in December, which is held in Dallas, Texas.
· Officers are encouraged to attend as many functions of the C-6B Lodges as possible during the year. These are opportunities to strengthen the bonds between the Lodges within the Section.
· Officers are expected to remain active in their home Lodge, Troop and/or Crew.
· Officers must be able to provide their own transportation to all events.
· Officers must be under the age of 21 during their tenure in office.
· Officers of Section C-6B are required to be in proper, clean Scout uniform whenever representing the Section and/or the Order of the Arrow.
· Since the Order of the Arrow is a unit of the Boy Scouts division, officers are expected to wear the khaki/tan Scout Shirt and khaki pants or shorts of the Boy Scout Supply Division, regardless of their personal unit registration.
· Uniform patches must be placed correctly according to the Boy Scout Handbook.
· Most duties are found in the Field Operations Guide (FOG). Either the Section Chief or the Council of Chiefs throughout the service year may assign specific duties.
· All officers are expected to communicate with Section Adviser via e-mail or telephone on at least a bi-weekly basis throughout the program year.
· Officers are expected to stay within their budgets, and to submit payment requisitions to the Section Professional Adviser or Section Adviser in a timely manner.
· Being a Section officer is a huge commitment. It involves a significant amount of time, energy, and travel to perform the duties of the position.
· Scouting activities are secondary to family, church and school responsibilities. Therefore, if your present responsibilities are time demanding (e.g.: sports teams at school, difficult school classes, heavy family responsibilities, etc.) then you need to re-think where the O.A. fits in to your life.
· The officers of Section C-6B may not serve simultaneously as a Lodge Chief. Therefore, if you have any intention of running for Lodge Chief, please discuss this with your Lodge Adviser and decide whether you can best serve the O.A. at this time in the Lodge or in the Section.
