I have received a few inquiries as to where more information could be found on “The Chiefs Corps”, that was referenced in the NOAC Update – 1/15/09. Since I was unable to find additional information on the 2009 National Order of the Arrow Conference website, here is the full article that was sent out in the email newsletter.
We are looking for Chiefs to further their commitment to LIVING THE LEGACY of servant leadership. This is a prime and unique opportunity to become a part of Order of the Arrow history by serving on the Chiefs Corps.
The Chiefs Corps tradition began at the 2006 NOAC and became a real force at the 2007 National Conservation and Leadership Summit. The Chiefs Corps for the 2009 NOAC will provide manpower for conference needs, support VIP relations, work with the concierge service, and be the service corps to help make the conference happen.
A select group of Arrowmen will be chosen to become members of the 2009 NOAC Chiefs Corps. The primary requirement to be eligible for consideration is that you are serving as a Chapter Chief or have served as a Lodge, Section, Region, or National Chief.
Once selected, you will become part of the staff of the 2009 NOAC. In years to come, you will continue to be an alumni member of the Chiefs Corps. In 2010, some alumni will serve again as members of the OA Service Corps at the 100-year anniversary National Scout Jamboree. All will remain Chiefs Corps alumni, along with new chiefs selected in the future.
To indicate your willingness to serve, simply complete the staff registration process for NOAC on the OA registration site (http://registration.oa-bsa.org). Complete the online NOAC staff application and select “Logistics: Chiefs Corps” as your preferred area of service. Applications will be online until March 31, 2009. Applications will be reviewed and approved by NOAC Conference Vice Chief Dylan Ellsworth, Lead Adviser Jeff Jonasen, and the National Office.
With your individual effort and with the collective efforts of the Chiefs Corps, we can help make the 2009 NOAC a success, while participating in many NOAC activities others don’t have the chance to experience. Please contact Dylan Ellsworth (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions regarding the Chiefs Corps, and check out the National Events website (http://event.oa-bsa.org) for more NOAC information.
See you at NOAC 09. I’m there!
