Vice-Chief of Program: Zach Gerner
Responsibilities: Responsible for all Lodge Activities and Program. Oversees the planning of lodge weekends through the weekend planning committee. Responsible for coordinating AIA and Contingent Leaders
Bio: I was elected into the OA October 2015. I went through the ordeal in February 2016 and I had a blast. I knew immediately that I was going to love the Order of the Arrow. My first year of being the OA was not well spent as I was the SPL of my troop and could not attend many of the weekends. However, as soon as I was done with that position I started going into the OA full force. That's when I met Kyle Webb, Kyle saw me as an enthusiastic scout who had potential so he put me under his wing. Eventually when he was the program chair I followed and helped where I could, learning as I went. Soon enough he became the vice chief of program, that is when I became his program chair. Being program chair has taught me a lot but I still have much to learn. I'm listening and taking notes on how the past leadership ran the lodge and how I can take their successes and turn them into a great program. On my personal time I like working on my car, skating, and just hanging out, all while doing my homework of course. Something I really want to put into effect this year is a program committee, a group of people I can turn to and rely on to help me make program the best it can be. If you are at all interested or know someone who is please contact me at the address below. Thank you.
