OA Unit Representative Leadership Position

Why is there no option to make a Crew Member an OA Unit Representative in the Crew? There is no option in the leadership positions dropdown for that. I notice it’s only available for Troops, however, it is certainly a position within a Crew to be the Unit Rep for OA. Can someone help me out with this?

In a Venture Crew, the OA Representative is a Crew Guide and wears that position patch. I Sea Scouts, the OA Rep is considered a “Specialist” and wears that position patch. It is all outlined in the OA Unit Representative Support Pack, which can be found at OA Unit Representative Program | Order of the Arrow, Boy Scouts of America.

Yours in Service,

Thanks for clearing that up and providing a reference for such. I was unaware of that distinction between the different programs. I will make sure I identify our OA Unit Rep as a Crew Guide.
