OA CALL-OUT CEREMONIES FOR NEWLY ELECTED MEMBERS

Call-out ceremonies were conducted at council camporees in April and May, to recognize the
newly elected members. OA call-out ceremonies will be conducted during the summer at Camp
Hiawatha and Bear Paw. Units attending an out-of-council camp can request a letter from the lodge adviser authorizing the OA at the camp you are attending, to call-out elected youth and selected
adult members. The OA callout ceremony is not required for a candidate to participate in the
Ordeal induction weekend.

NEED HELP FROM ADULT MEMBERS

We are looking for adults who have skills or certifications to help with OA conferences and other
events. They do not need to be a current OA member to help, unless specified below. Please

WELCOME MEETINGS FOR NEWLY ELECTED

Newly elected youth and their parents were invited to attend an OA WELCOME MEETING on May
18th or 20th to learn more about the Ordeal induction weekend and how to prepare themselves to
attend one of the conferences. If a candidate was not able to attend one of the scheduled meetings,
you can contact the lodge adviser.

We will conduct additional Welcome Meetings in August before the August conference and in
September before the October conference.
