Lodge Executive Committee
What is the Lodge Executive Committee?
The lodge executive committee consists of the youth serving as lodge officers (including the immediate past lodge chief), area chiefs, chapter chiefs, and the lodge operating committee chairman. The lodge executive committee ("LEC") is the steering committee of the lodge. It is responsible for the management and planning for the operation of the lodge as it carries out the business of the lodge within the policies established by the National Order of the Arrow committee. The youth are supported in their efforts by the lodge adviser, lodge associate advisers, lodge area advisers, chapter advisers, lodge committee advisers, and the lodge staff adviser.
In addition to regularly scheduled LEC meetings, there are lodge adviser & officer meetings ("LAM") and area executive committee ("AEC") meetings scheduled during the year.
The lodge adviser meeting is chaired by the lodge adviser and all of the adults who serve in adviser (associate, area, chapter, and committee) capacity at the LEC are expected to attend. The only youth attending this meeting is the current lodge chief.
The area executive committee is chaired by the lodge area chief with support from the lodge area adviser. All chapter chiefs and their advisers in the service area comprise the balance of the committee. The time period for the AEC is the 3rd week of the month with the final determination of date, time and location being one that is convenient the area and chapter leadership. The only requirement from the lodge is that the date, time and location be announced well in advance.
The LEC and LAM are held on the 3rd Tuesday of alternating months. The LEC and the LAM are held at St Johns United Methodist Church in Springfield, VA and start at 7:30 PM.
