Olan, exactly. Those are the positions that are questionable in my
mind. We've never had the question come up around here. Everyone
(that I know of) who is active in OA is in a position which is not only
registered, but dues-paying. I doubt that someone who is functioning
as a merit badge counselor only would be nominated for OA, but I can
imagine the situation of someone who had been active with a unit and a
member of the lodge cutting back activities and giving up positions
other than MBC but wanting to remain a member of the lodge. I don't
know what the ruling would be in that case.
Some comments have been made about adult members of the OA other than
advisers. I thought that ALL adult members of the lodge function as
advisers. The new national position on adults in OA makes it very
clear that there is no position in OA for an adult who is not serving
youth. Thus, all adults are advisers.
