OA Lodge

At the local level, Lodges exist to serve BSA Councils and individual Units.  The key leaders in the Lodge are the youth Lodge Chief, voluteer adult Lodge Adviser, and staff adviser.  The Lodge Chief presides over the Lodge Executive Committee, which is responsible for executing the annual program of the Lodge.  While each Lodge is different, many oLdges have one or more Vice Chiefs, a secretary, and a treasurer, as well as committee chairmen responsible for various aspects of the Lodge’s program.  Many Lodges, especially large ones where additional structure is necessary, have Chapters.  These often align with BSA Districts and execute the program of the Lodge on a community level.
