OA Leadership Positions

I just noticed that youth leadership positions in the Order of the Arrow have been added to the leadership positions that are tracked by Scoutbook. The positions range from Chapter and Lodge Officers all the way up to the National Chief.

Just curious, when did this happen?

Interesting. I had looked at the bug fixes but didn’t scroll down far enough to see the change.

Will these positions now count as positions of responsibility for advancement or is that now in the works?

I haven’t heard anything about changes to the Scouts BSA requirements that would permit OA positions to count as PoR for rank advancement. I would be very surprised if the BSA made this change.

They do not count towards rank advancement. They were added at user request.
