The Order of the Arrow Troop Representative or Team Representative is a youth liaison serving between the local OA lodge or chapter and his unit. In his unit, he will serve as a communication and programmatic link to and from Arrowmen, adult leaders and Scouts who are not presently members of the Order. He will do this in a fashion that strengthens the mission of the lodge, purpose of the Order and the mission of the Boy Scouts of America. By setting a good example, he will enhance the image of the Order as a service arm to his unit.


The Troop Representative Program is a two-way communications program to ensure that our Troop Representatives have the information necessary, but also the resources to be able to get questions answered.

Unit of Excellence Program

The Order of the Arrow Unit of Excellence Award seeks to identify those units, and the leaders within them, who excel at incorporating the OA into their annual planning. This award is intended to provide a tool for lodges to recognize, incentivize, and operationalize unit-level participation in Order of the Arrow programs.


To ensure accurate and timely information is being passed along to our Troop Representatives from each Chapter, the Chapter Troop Representative Chairmen sends a monthly newsletter (on the Sunday before the first Monday of the month) to every Registered Troop Representative and OA Assistant Scoutmaster.
