Lodge Bylaws



What are Bylaws?

Every lodge in the Order of the Arrow has a set of bylaws. The bylaws are used in managing the lodge elections, lodge functions, and lodge responsibilities. A large part of the organization of the Kanwa tho Lodge draws from them for guidance. Expressed in the document is the process for making a change to them. If any member feels that a change is necessary, please follow the proper process as outlined.
