Get ready for the Section W-6P Conclave to be held on the beautiful island of Oahu at Camp Pupukea. The Conclave is an annual gathering for all Order of the Arrow members from Hawai‘i and across the Pacific, bringing together Scouts and scouters from Achpateuny Lodge of the Far East Council and our host lodge, Nā Mokupuni O Lawelawe Lodge of the Aloha Council. This year’s Section Conclave is scheduled for April 3-5, 2020 and will be held at Camp Pupukea on the famous North Shore of Oahu. Pupukea offers spectacular mountain views and a peaceful setting in a Hawaiian forest.
Registration is open now here.
The Conclave program seeks to increase the knowledge and understanding of the delegates in all aspects of the Order of the Arrow program and have fun. This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow Arrowmen from Section W-6P along with the newly elected 2020 National Vice Chief Noah Smith. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to fellowship with and learn from a National Officer!
Through the Conclave, Arrowmen should be inspired to set and commit themselves to higher goals of performance for themselves and their lodges. Having fun with your fellow Arrowmen and sharing experiences at Camp Pupukea is an event that you will never forget. There will be shows, indoor and outdoor activities, and Section Chief Surya Sriram is planning a variety of exciting events that you won’t want to miss. All kinds of fun activities are on the schedule, you just need to register as soon as possible to reserve your space at the premier OA event of the year.
Finally, a Section Election will be held to elect the Section Chief, Section Vice Chief and Section Secretary. In order to run for office, you will need a document saying the position(s) you intend on running for and written (paper, email, etc.) approval by your respective Scout Executive or his designated representative. You will need to be under the age of 21 during your entire term of office.
Those elected at this Section Election will have the opportunity to attend the Western Region’s Section Gathering in Saratoga, California, October 23-25, 2020. The Section Chief represents all Arrowmen in Section W6P (Achpateuny and NÄ Mokupuni O Lawelawe Lodges) and represents us in the Western Region of the Order of the Arrow. The Section Chief travels to the Western Region Gathering in Saratoga, California as well as the National Planning Meeting in Dallas, Texas in December. The Section Vice Chief and Secretary have been invited to the past Western Region Gatherings and we anticipate that they will be invited again.
There will be a Trading Post and Silent Patch Auction, so be sure to bring extra money, as you will get an opportunity to buy Scouting items you will not see again. We will be auctioning off a set of the entire set of patches that includes a conclave patch from each of the Western Region Sections.
