BeAScout.org is a tool prospective families use to find units to join. BeAScout.org has a Google pin for every unit. Is your unit information up to date, or do you have the unit leader from three years ago as your contact? Unit leaders can update your unit information to make it EASY for new Scouting families to find your unit by logging into myscouting.org and looking under Unit Tools, selecting BeAScout, and then clicking on "Unit Pin Management."

Once each year, a troop or team may hold a unit election to elect youth members of their troop or team to become members of the Order of the Arrow. Both youth and adult Scouts and Scouters can become members of the OA, but only youth members are elected. Assistant Scoutmasters under the age of 21 are considered youth members for OA purposes. New members are voted on by every youth member of the troop present at the election - not just the OA members.
Elections are normally held at a regular troop meeting, and take about half an hour to complete. In order for an election to be held, at least 50% of your active youth members must be present – if less than 50% are present, the election must be rescheduled. The OA elections must be completed by the OA chapter election team with support of unit Arrowmen, the OA troop/team representative and the unit leader. Schedule your unit election and request the election forms.

Community Service Day is an opportunity for units to perform a community service project, conservation project, project for their chartered organization, or participate in an Eagle Scout project. The Sam Houston Area Council is celebrating a "Century of Service" in 2014. To commemorate this milestone, we will log-in more than 100,000 hours of service across the 16 1/2 counties we serve. The Sam Houston Area Council will be reaching out to the communities in our area, notifying them of this day of service and encourage them to recommend projects in which units can participate.
