BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA

Scouting Forums

Is scoutbook going to create an OA eligibilty report for crews like there is for troops now that crews can hold elections in 2019?

Continuing the discussion from Order of the Arrow in Scoutbook:

I thought this was already done - but looking at ship I see it is not - I will send to Developers

@PaulDreier - in looking at https://oa-bsa.org/about/membership - So a Crew cannot put a scout forward that has First Class but not Venturing is how I read it - in writing up the story - cause the rank has to correspond with the unit type

Hard to say - a crew or ship cannot award a First Class - but they can award Star/Life/Eagle


Beginning February 1, 2019 , unit elections will be permitted in Scouts BSA, Venturing and Sea Scout units. The new Order of the Arrow membership requirements are as follows:

  • Be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America.
  • Have experienced 15 nights of camping while registered with a troop, crew, or ship within the two years immediately prior to the election. The 15 nights must include one, but no more than one, long-term camp consisting of at least five consecutive nights of overnight camping, approved and under the auspices and standards of the Boy Scouts of America. Only five nights of the long-term camp may be credited toward the 15-night camping requirement; the balance of the camping (10 nights) must be overnight, weekend, or other short-term camps of, at most, three nights each. Ship nights may be counted as camping for Sea Scouts.
  • At the time of their election, youth must be under the age of 21, hold the Scouts BSA First Class rank, the Venturing Discovery Award, or the Sea Scout Ordinary rank or higher, and following approval by the Scoutmaster, Crew Advisor or Sea Scout Skipper, be elected by the youth members of their unit.
