The social media craze has swept across the nation. On a regular monthly basis, 232 million people use Twitter and Facebook has over 900 million members. With so many people using these proven methods of communication, it is no coincidence that Section NE-6A chose to brand their leadership seminar with a hashtag. As Section NE-6A Chief Zach Sager explained, “It’s a name you won’t easily forget. It helps to promote #LEAD to Arrowmen in the section. It’s the kind of name that people will ask about”. With helpful training tracks, a top-notch staff and a quality experience, #LEAD was an event to remember.
It will not be the only event to remember though. Other sections have been putting on spectacular training events like #LEAD for years.

Every year section chiefs from around the nation gather along with the lead advisers of the Order of the Arrow to plan for the coming year at the National Planning Meeting. This year’s meeting was held December 27-30 in Westlake, Texas at the Marriott Solana. Once the meeting began the section chiefs were swiftly escorted into the election for the national chief and vice chief. In the wee hours of the morning National Chief Alex Call and National Vice Chief Donald Stephens emerged victorious. The next morning the chiefs broke into regions to elect the 2015 region chiefs. Matthew Bell was elected as the 2015 northeast region chief.
The section chiefs of the Northeast Region gathered bright and early on the morning of December 28, 2014 to conduct the election for the 2015 northeast region chief. Matthew Bell of Section NE-4A was elected to lead the region into the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow. Congratulations Matt!
