Brothers,

It’s nearly November and I want you to know that we are already hard at work planning for our 2017 year! Last week I attended the Western Region Gathering, where I, along with my fellow Western Region section Chiefs and our section Adviser, learned a lot about our roles and collaborated on ideas to help our region and section programs. In December I will be attending the OA National Planning Meeting, where, among other things, I will be contributing to planning for our 2017 national program of emphasis (Jamboree).

For next year, I plan for us to meet four times, two in person, and two remote. The two in-person meetings will be in Las Vegas for the on-site SLR/COC, and the second in august, location TBD. Our first meeting is January 14, which will be an electronic meeting. I’ll share an agenda, how to participate, and more details on this meeting soon.

I hope you have a safe and fun Halloween and I will keep you updated on other developments as we move along.

Yours in Service,

Elijah Martin
