Justin St. Louis elected Northeast Region Chief

At the 2017 National Planning Meeting, our very own Section NE-1 Chief Justin St. Louis was elected Northeast Region Chief!

Justin is an Eagle Scout from Troop 7 in Lowell, Massachusetts; a Vigil Honor member and Founder’s Award recipient of Pennacook Lodge. Prior to his election as section chief, Justin served as lodge chief, Northeast Region Communications Coordinator, section vice chief, and section secretary, and section chief. He is currently involved as the Deputy Coordinator of the National OA Communications Team. He attended the 2012 and 2015 National Order of the Arrow Conferences, along with NEXT: A New Century! Justin served as a Jamboree Vice Chief of Operation Arrow at the 2017 National Scout Jamboree. Outside of scouting, he is a sophomore at the University of Massachusetts Lowell where he majors in political science. In his free time, Justin enjoys swimming, camping, and graphic design. Justin’s most memorable Scouting experience was his first National Order of the Arrow Conference in 2012.

With Justin's election to Northeast Region Chief, there will be a special election for our next section chief. In the mean time, Cam Killian will serve as our acting Section Chief. In the next 30 days, there will be a special election to elect our new section chief. The members of the Section NE-1 Council of Chiefs will vote in this election.

To be eligible for election, section chief candidates must meet the following qualifications:
1. A registered member, in good standing, of the Order of the Arrow and the Boy Scouts of America in a council within the section who has the approval, in writing and in advance of being nominated, of his council Scout executive or council Scout executive’s designee. The member’s council must be in good standing (renewed its OA charter) with the national office.
2. Younger than 21 during his entire term of office.

If a current section officer is elected section chief, there will be another election for their position.
