2013 was certainly a great year for the Northeast Region Order of the Arrow team, and I am incredibly proud of all that we were able to accomplish. When I received a text last year on December 28th to tell me that Tyler Allen was elected as the 2013 Region Chief I knew that in addition to being a very busy year, it would be a fun one, and, it surely has been!
It's hard to believe that we are cruising towards conclave season already. It seems like it was only yesterday when our Section Officers got together for the Gathering of Leaders to plan out the year, learn more about their roles, and discuss how to make their conclaves great. We have had a really great group of officers and it has been a real treat to sit back and watch them grow as leaders.
As I look back, I am amazed at the road that we’ve covered this summer in celebration of the Order of the Arrow’s first century of service. An incredible amount of planning and execution went into these events.
