Monthly Chapter Meeting
The general membership meets the first and third Tuesday of every month from 7:00-8:30 pm in the basement of the First Presbyterian Church, 220 West 22nd Street, Frontier (the basement door faces Carey Avenue and is across the street from the Taco John’s restaurant). Map

Monthly Chapter Executive Committee Meeting
The chapter officers meet the first Tuesday of every month at 6:00 pm at the First Presbyterian Church, Cheyenne. The CEC conducts the business and planning of the chapter. All Arrowmen are welcome to attend.

OA Troop Representatives
If your troop does not yet have a Troop Representative, you can serve in this office if you are an active OA member. Service as an OA Troop Representative is a troop leadership position that counts toward Boy Scout rank advancement requirements, and helps your troop OA members stay in touch with what’s happening in the Lodge and Chapter.

The Troop OA Representative is appointed by the troop SPL, with Scoutmaster approval, and then is supervised by the troop ASPL.

Contact the Chapter Chief or the Chapter Adviser (below) to give your OATR contact information to the Chapter.

Unit OA Elections
Troop Elections will be conducted between January 15th and March 27th. Contact the Chapter Advisor if you have a date you’d like to schedule – only one election per night – first come, first served. All unit elections MUST be conducted by a certified OA election team. Units may not conduct their own elections, even if they have OA members within their units.

Sign up for your unit OA elections at the monthly District Roundtables beginning in January, or contact the Chapter Advisor (below).
