Troop Elections
We are just in the beginning of the OA Troop Election season (December-February) and we could use help visiting the different troops and conducting the elections. I ask that you reach out to your Scoutmaster to get your troop’s elections date on the master schedule sooner rather than later. You will have a fellow brother help you conduct your troop’s elections. Please let me know what date your PLC has decided when your troop will hold the elections. Once your troop is on the main election calendar, we will send out the required Election form and ballot to the Scoutmaster.
