The Order of the Arrow offers many different leadership opportunities from the OA Rep all the way to national positions.
Chapter: Each Chapter consists of a Chapter Chief and his staff. They are in office for one year and are elected by the members of the Chapter.
Lodge: The Lodge is run by the Lodge Chief and he and his staff are elected by the youth at the Fall Fellowship each year. The Lodge helps the local council provide a quality Scouting program through recognition of Scouting spirit and performance, development of youth leadership and service, promotion of Scout camping and outdoor programs, and enhancement of membership tenure.
Section: An Order of the Arrow section consists of lodges within a geographic area of the region. Once every year, representatives of lodges in the section come together for a conclave to share in fellowship, skills, and training. A section is lead by three youth officers, the Section Chief, Section Vice-Chief, and Section Secretary, who are advised by an adult Section Adviser and professional Section Staff Adviser.
Region: The region chief is the youth leader of the region elected by the section chiefs in his region. This election is held in conjunction with called meetings of the section chiefs to elect the national chief and vice-chief, as well as to plan national Order of the Arrow events.
National: The national chief and vice-chief are Arrowmen elected by the section chiefs during the annual national planning meeting. They serve as members of the national Order of the Arrow Committee, providing the opinion of youth on national OA policy. They also serve as the presiding officers for national OA events.
