OA Annual Dues
Ha Kin Skay A Ki Lodge - Membership Renewal
You will retain your membership in the Ha-Kin-Skay-A-Ki Lodge and the OA by paying your Annual OA Dues. OA dues are payable annually and expire on December 31 of each year. To wear the OA sash and the Lodge pocket flap on your uniform you must be a dues paying member of the Order of the Arrow. If you became an OA member and did your Ordeal this year, you have already paid your dues for this year when you registered for the Ordeal. If you have any doubt, you can send an email to the Lodge Adviser below and verify your current status before making or sending in your payment.
How much are dues?
Dues are $15. That's barely over $1 a month! Pay electroncially below or use the OA Annual Dues Form and mail or bring it to the Council Service Center with your payment.
When do my OA Dues expire?
OA dues expire annually on December 31.
What if I haven't paid dues in a few years?
No problem. We do not collect any back dues. Just pay your current OA dues and your membership is considered active.
What do I get from paying my dues?
Paying your dues allows you to wear the OA sash and lodge flap on your uniform to show your membership in the OA. You also are able to attend a number of fantastic Order of the Arrow events such as Conclaves, Section Conclave, Spring and Winter Events, and much more! You also will receive a copy of the Ramshorn, the lodge's newsletter, every season via e-mail.
What do my dues go towards?
A portion of your annual dues is sent to the National Office to help fund youth Leadership travel and provides money for scholarship. Annually, we contribute funds to the Pikes Peak Council for worthy projects. This past year we donated $3,500 towards a matching grant from the National OA to help implement the new ATV program at Camp Alexander. Within the Lodge we offer scholarships to our members to attend National Leadership Training courses, Leadership Training events with other Lodges . We pay for the facility rental and free pizza and great door prizes for our 2 General Membership meetings in February and October. We also pay for administrative cost in printing elections materials for use by the Troops and Teams and for postage to mail out our membership cards.
