On August 5, 2015 from 2 pm to 3 pm, in the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center Auditorium, a panel of past National Chiefs assembled to answer questions from a mediator and also took questions from the audience. This panel included 2012 National Chief John Rehm, 2000 Chief Carey Mignerey, 1988 Chief Jeff Moser, 1979 and 1980 two term Chief Jeff Herrmann and 1961 Chief Ron Temple. Each one of them shared how they got started in the OA and the journey it took them to get to National chief. For Ron Temple, it was his scoutmaster that got him involved, inspired and motivated to keep moving p in his leadership roles. Jeff Moser’s chapter needed him the most which got him involved in the leadership chain in the OA. John Rehm mentioned his passion for ceremonial teams which caught his eye and got him a chairmanship. Jeff Herrmann loved the big politics and election in the Order. At his first NOAC in 1975 he was a chapter chief. Lastly, Carey Mignerey, a very eager chapter service chairman climbed the ranks just like all the rest preceding him. Each of these Arrowmen had uniquely individual stories and revelations to tell. They each possessed that special something to get them to where they were years ago. Many of them are still very involved with scouting and our Order to this day. The service they have given us is something that we as an organization will not forget. * click on picture to view full picture
