OA - how does an Adult get elected?

Ratio for newly selected (note, not elected) adults is 1:50 youth members in a unit or fraction thereof.


Requirement for adults is camping standard and can make a positive contribution to the Order and to the unit by being an adult member.


SE has final decision, most often delegated to staff Adviser to the Lodge.

They seem to have the idea that getting selected in a right, not an honor or priviledge
