One of the best parts about a Section Conclave is meeting up with Arrowmen you've never met before. This year the Section is flying in arrowmen from all across the nation to share their experiences and trainings with you. Even the National Chief, Forrest Gertin is making it to California this year!

Tell us about when you first joined the OA:

I joined pretty young, at least 5 years ago. I didn’t have any plans to be super involved necessarily, but my friend was in some lodge leadership position, and so I was dragged to an LEC. There, I was brought onto the team, as they needed a secretary. From that point, I made friends with people on their way to section and region leadership, and was again dragged into section (though didn’t really know what was going on). I was brought to a COC for the 2012 conclave, and they needed a patch design. I drew up the patch with the only program I had available, Microsoft Word, and submitted it over the course of the meeting. Michael Kintscher and Zach Crosley saw me through the editorial process. In the next year or two, worked in promotions and stuff. I had friends above me who assigned me to those sorts of jobs, and eventually went into social media work (facebook banners, fliers, etc). I designed the 2013 (Lord of the Rings) patch set, and put a lot of effort into TronClave (because of a mild obsession with Tron at the time).I was also put to work formatting newsletters.
