Unit of Excellence Report
At any time throughout the year, you may request a report that details your Unit’s participation and conversion (Brotherhood) activities in the OA. To request a report, send an email to LodgeAdviser@nentico.org. This will help you gauge if your Unit is on track. The report lists number of members in good standing (dues paid), participation for those individuals and unit percentage participation, and Brotherhood conversion percentages.
Qualification for Award
After the September Fellowship weekend of each year, units who think they qualify for the award should contact the Lodge Adviser at LodgeAdviser@nentico.org. The Adviser will verify that the award criteria has been met.
1) Ribbon – Each Unit of Excellence will receive a streamer to be displayed proudly on their unit flag. (Streamers are not made available by the National Office until the following June of each year.)
2) Certificate for Scoutmasters of Excellence – A Scoutmaster whose unit has achieved Unit of Excellence status three times will be recognized at the annual lodge banquet* with a certificate.
3) Recognition Patch for OA Troop Representatives and OA Troop Rep Advisers – patches can be purchased by those individuals who qualify.
*If the troop is not represented at the Lodge Banquet, other arrangements for recognition can be made.
