The Order of the Arrow is the National Honor Society of the Boy Scouts of America. Each December a group of the order’s top leaders gather in Dallas, TX for a four day conference to beginning planning for the Order of the Arrow’s future in the upcoming years. I was asked to participate in this year’s conference to help the National OA Communications Team plan for how they would promote the Order’s 100th Anniversary in 2015.
The OA Communications Team is currently the largest committee of Arrowmen working on a specific task for the National OA Committee. The OA Communications Team oversees all communications efforts from the Order of the Arrow including the National Bulletin a quarterly published newsletter, 3 different e-newsletters, social media including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and SnapChat, and our own website. The OA Communications Team has grown to over 100 Arrowmen and continues to work to get the word out to Arrowmen across the country.
