Lodges exist to serve BSA councils and individual units. The Lodge Executive Committee (LEC) is the steering committee of the lodge and is responsible for executing the annual program of the lodge. The LEC follows all policies concerning the organization and administration of the lodge utilizing the Guide for Officers and Advisers.
Who is the Lodge Executive Committee?
The Lodge Executive Committee (LEC) —a key group—consists of the youth serving as lodge officers (including the immediate past lodge chief), vice chiefs and their advisers, operating committee chairs and their advisers, area chiefs, the staff adviser, chapter chiefs, chapter advisers, the lodge adviser, and the Scout executive. The key 3 in the lodge are the lodge chief, lodge adviser, and staff adviser.
The lodge chief is the chair of the LEC and presides over meetings. The lodge chief is expected to prepare agendas and share them with the lodge and staff adviser before sending them to committee members with the meeting announcement.
What does the Lodge Executive Committee do?
The LEC committee meets to share reports, promote lodge events, and let the Arrowmen decide the plan for Colonneh Lodge. The LEC typically includes breakouts sessions such as administration, inductions, program, service, and chapter operations. The LEC is the primary method to provide key information to the chapters.
The LEC is the steering committee for the lodge. The LEC carries out the business of the lodge by planning, coordinating and executing the annual program of the lodge, fellowship and ordeal (induction) weekends, service projects, training sessions, and other events as appropriate.
Chairmen actively work with the sector vice chiefs for the planning of all lodge events including Arrowman Bash, Lodge Service Weekends, Fall Pow Wow, and more amazing events. The LEC is a crucial part of the lodge.
The LEC faces the problems, studies possible solutions, and then, through the lodge or chapter committee organization, acts. It carries out the business of the lodge, coordinating the work being done by officers and operating committees. Regardless of any executive committee decision or undertaking, the lodge must operate within the policies established by the national Order of the Arrow committee, without variation or modification.
