2020 Lone Star Fellowship
The Lone Star Fellowship is Section SR-3’s conclave. This year, it will be a day of fellowship and learning in a virtual environment. Inspired by the resilience and innovation demonstrated by lodge leaders in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the section officers have worked to provide a meaningful, quality virtual program that offers the same level of engagement as a tradition, in-person conclave. We are excited for you to join us July 18. The 2020 Lone Star Fellowship promises to bring innovative training, unforgettable experiences, and thrilling competitions for all Arrowmen!
This year, there is no fee to attend conclave. On July 18, links to live Zoom meetings will be posted on the SR-3 Facebook, and recordings of each session will later be posted to the section website.
The centerpiece of this year's Lone Star Fellowship program is our trainings, which serve as valuable resources and meaningful experiences for new and experienced Arrowmen alike. Lodge leaders can begin their journey on the Path to High Performance, exploring the unique challenges facing our lodges and identifying strategies to improve programs that engage membership. Next, they will develop an understanding of the resources available in the OA Today, such as the newly updated OA Lodgemaster program, and find ways to connect with lodge membership through social media. Finally, the Inductions Experience will be analylzed step-by-step, offering a forum for lodge leaders to share their best practices. Alongside these trainings, Arrowmen can spend time meeting OA National Officers, hearing their journey of leadership and learning about what inspires their cheerful service to others.
The SR-3 Lone Star Fellowship will be the FIRST virtual conclave nationwide to offer a wide range of competitions in addition to trainings. Show off your lodge's accomplishments over the last year through lodge program competitions. Share the tradition of the Order of the Arrow through ceremonies and AIA individual dance. For more information on the rules for virtual submissions and entry guidelines, check out the Competitions Guide.
True to the conclave tradition, the 2020 Lone Star Fellowship will open and close with thematic shows. Hear messages from your section leadership which remind us of our solemn purpose during these challenging times. Additionally, a midday recognition ceremony will be held to announce the results of the lodge program, ceremonies, and AIA individual dance competitions.
