Miami Lodge is a youth-run organization and is a part of the Miami Valley Council, Boy Scouts of America. There are five elected leadership positions, as well as many appointed positions in the Lodge - each held by Arrowmen who are under the age of 21. These elected positions are Lodge Chief, Vice Chief of Inductions, Vice Chief of Operations, Vice Chief of Chapter Support, and Vice Chief of Program.
Youth Leadership: At the core of the OA is youth leadership. Our youth members set the direction of our Lodge and plan/lead our events. The Lodge Executive Committee or LEC is the formal structure of our youth leadership. Our LEC consists of Lodge Officers who are youth members and are elected annually by our youth membership. The officers consist of our Lodge Chief and our Vice Chiefs. The Lodge Chief then appoints Committee Chairmen, who are also youth members to lead our many committees. For more information on our LEC or if you would like to join our LEC contact our Lodge Chief.
Adult Leadership: Each Officer and Committee Chairman has an adult Adviser to assist them with their position. The job of the Adviser is to offer support to their youth counterpart. Advisers do not do the job of the youth yet, as the title states, they simply advise. The Lodge Adviser is appointed annually by the Scout Executive and serves as the Adviser to the Lodge Chief. Associate Lodge Advisers, Chapter Advisers, and Committee Advisers are appointed annually by the Lodge Adviser and advise their respective youth leader. For more information about our Adviser Corps or if you are interested in serving as an Adviser, contact our Lodge Adviser, or click here to fill out our Adult Interest Survey.
