Chapter Meetings for the Order of the Arrow are scheduled on a regular basis, sometimes monthly to coincide with District Roundtable meetings.
Chapter Meetings can involve planning for most Order of the Arrow projects, ceremonies, and activities. It should be possible for each chapter to train ceremonial teams to conduct Ordeals and Ordeal ceremonies, as well as the Brotherhood membership ceremony. Planning for the year-round program of the chapter must be coordinated with that of the district and lodge.
Each chapter plans its program to carry out the objectives of the lodge. Such events as calling-out ceremonies, Ordeals, Ordeal ceremonies, and Brotherhood ceremonies can be conducted easily by chapter personnel. Service projects and social events lend themselves better to smaller groups than to the entire lodge. Some chapters develop dance teams and hold banquets, campouts, and other Order of the Arrow activities.
