About Tamegonit Lodge

Lodge Executive Committee (LEC)

As a leadership development program, the Order of the Arrow places an emphasis on youth leadership. The OA defines a youth as any Scout under the age of 21. Tamegonit Lodge is governed by the Lodge Executive Committee, which is led by the Lodge Chief, 4 VIce Chiefs, the Lodge Secretary, and the Lodge Treasurer. Each Vice Chief leads a committee of chairmen who are all voting members of the LEC. The youth of the LEC are supported by the Adult Adviser corps, which is comprised of adults at or above the age of 21.

Levels of Membership

In the Order of the Arrow, there are three degrees of membership. We do not have ranks or elevations. All Arrowmen are equal, as we are brothers.

Getting Involved

Organized opportunities to serve are held on a monthly basis and special opportunities happen as needed or upon request from Council Staff.

Other than continuing a tradition of high-quality ceremonies, we would like to see our team grow in both size and cohesion. We’re looking forward to the continuation of our meetings and furthering each of our ceremonialists’ understanding and connection to the scripts, especially in regards to the fundamental values the scripts lend to our organization. Recruitment has been a focal point this past year as some of our team members have been getting older and can’t perform forever. It would be amazing to have fresh faces that are interested and invested in learning more about the Order of the Arrow and the symbolism of our ceremonies. Hopefully, this year will be a big building block in the progression and continuation of our consistently strong group from last year, and in the years to come.

The Order of the Arrow is not a one man show. It takes many moving parts and different people to run a successful Lodge. This is the most evident during an Induction. It takes over 50 staff to
run a successful Induction. This is why we need people like you to help us. Whether you want to be an Elangomat and lead the ordeal candidates in their cheerful service, or if you want to perform in ceremonies and inspire the next generation of scouts, we need your help. If you are interested fill out the staff interest form and if you have any questions about any of the staff positions, please email [email protected]
