Welcome to the OA!

So you were elected by your unit and went through your Ordeal ….

First we want to say Welcome to Wahunsenakah Lodge and congratulations on completing your induction into the Order. The first question that’s probably on your mind is, now what?Here are some things you as a new member can do right off the bat to get involved:

>>Follow the link above to JumpStart.  This site was developed for new members in the Order of the Arrow.  It will help answer questions, share history of the Order and explain how to seal your membership in the Order by obtaining Brotherhood.

>>Look below to learn how you can earn the First Year Arrowmen Award, an exclusive award available just for you! 

>>Read the Order of the Arrow Handbook that you received at your Ordeal

>>Attend your chapter meetings.  Days, times and locations can be found on the Chapters Tab

>>Join a committee and get involved.  The “Lodge Leadership” page (under the “About Us” tab) will give you names and contact information for all of the Lodge’s committees
