Meet the Men at Conclave!

Ever wonder who exactly the mysterious Regional and National leadership are? Or what exactly they do? If you said yes to either of those, I have some exciting news about Conclave for all of you!

We will be officially hosting both the National and Central Region Chiefs at Camp Rotary this May. Before you meet them there, why not learn a little about who they are and where they’re from?

Central Region Chief: Ricky Angeletti
Ricky Angeletti

Ricky is currently a student at the University of Akron and a Vigil Honor Member of the OA. He’s also an Eagle Scout, and is originally from Uniontown, OH Section C-4A.

National Chief: Nick Dannemiller
Nick Dannemiller

Nick’s a student at Colarado State University majoring in Wildlife Biology. He was born in Denver, but grew up in Tualatin, Oregon. He’s an Eagle Scout from Troop 530 and a recipient of the James E. West and Founders Awards, as well as the Vigil Honor, among others. Before being elected National Chief, Nick served as Wauna La-Mon’tay’s Lodge Chief and Vice-Chief of Administration. He has served at both NOAC and OA trail crew, and wants to become a Wildlife Vet.

Both of these guys can’t wait to meet you at Conclave, so what other reasons do you need to register?

C-2 Servant Leadership Nomination Forms Available

The Section C-2 Servant Leadership Nomination Forms are now available. If you know of any Youth or Adult who is worthy of this honor, please fill one of these out and get it in by May 2nd. The nominations will be brought before the awards committee on the Friday night of conclave, and awarded the next day.
For those unfamiliar with the award, here’s a brief description of what the award is intended to be:

This award is meant to recognize those who give exceptional service to the Section, this award is given based on merit. Service to the Section is given through all sorts of ways, and this award is meant to recognize those of all walks of the Section’s life. Both youth and adults will be eligible for the Award for Section Service. No previous service award will make someone ineligible for the Servant Leader Award. The nominee must be a registered, dues paying member, in good standing with their lodge.

As the award is currently written, it states that each lodge gets a total of 5 nominations each year, which would mean that for this year, each lodge would get up to 10. Keep in mind that not all 10 need to be used.

Council of Chiefs to Meet January 25

Brothers,

I hope you are all having a happy new year.  This message is to remind you of our upcoming COC on January 25 at Michigan State University.  The meeting starts at 10:00 a.m. and will be held in Room 175 of Brody Hall, 241 West Brody Rd, East Lansing, MI 48825.  Parking may be found across the street in the parking structure of the Kellogg Center, 219 S. Harrison.  The COC will start at 10:00 am.

On the Friday, January 24, before the COC, there will be fellowship out at Camp Kiwanis with overnight accommodations in Dart and Sparrow cabins.  Camp Kiwanis is at 676 W Dansville Rd, Mason, MI 48854, and only a few minutes away from MSU.  There will be a continental breakfast at Camp Kiwanis on Saturday morning.

After the COC, we will have lunch in the Brody cafeteria, one of the largest in the world.  The cafeteria offers a variety of different food choices, from Asian and pasta, to Mexican and pizza.  The cost of the lunch is about $9.00.  At approximately 1:30 p.m. (or earlier), we will be having training sessions as requested by the lodges.  There will be three sessions, one on the new Brotherhood ceremony, one on giving presentations, and the other for chapter officers on having the BEST chapter meeting ever!  It is strongly encouraged that the lodges bring their chapter chiefs/officers and ceremony team members to this training.  If they do not wish to attend the COC, they can just be at Brody Hall by 1:00 p.m. for the training (or lunch if they want).  Attendees who complete the training will receive a special patch.

Please RSVP to Mr. Reisdorph by Monday, January 20th if possible so we can plan for accommodations and Saturday breakfast.  As always, if you need anything, just ask.

Yours in Brotherhood,

Adam Cusick

Section C-2 Secretary
