The Order of the Arrow has recently introduced a Member Portal, though which you can do the following:
- Update your contact information (email/phone/mailing address)
- View the lodge calendar
- Find links to register for events
- Check if your dues are paid
- Contact lodge leadership with questions
In addition, recently elected members whose units opted to inform them of their election prior to their ordeal can access information to help you prepare for your Ordeal, and recently inducted members will have access to information to help you on your journey to Brotherhood.
You must be 13 years of age or older to get a Member Portal account. Currently there is no access for parents to accounts of members who are under 13, either. A future update should add the ability for parents of members under 13 to access on their behalf.
Currently, new portal accounts are automatically issued to newly-elected candidates after their election results have been announced, or to newly-inducted members after they pass their ordeal, whichever happens first, provided that their election was reported via the new LodgeMaster Inductions module and they are age 13 or older.
Get an Arrow ID account
The Order of the Arrow has a single-sign-on system called Arrow ID which is used to access any official Order of the Arrow resources (such as the national registration system used for NOAC and NLS/DYLC, LodgeMaster, and the Member Portal). If you’ve ever attended NOAC or NLS/DYLC in the last several years, you probably already have an account. You will need an Arrow ID account first before you can access the Member Portal. If you don't have an account yet, you can sign up with the following steps:
- Go to https://id.oa-bsa.org/Account/Register
- Fill in your name, your email address, and the password you want to use for your account, and submit the form.
- Click Register.
- Follow any directions given to complete your registration.
Get a Member Portal Invitation
You will need an invitation from your lodge to get a portal account. If you haven’t previously received a portal invitation, contact your lodge adviser or records adviser. The invitation will include a code you can use to link your Arrow ID to your OA member record.
Click the link in the invitation email. If you get prompted to log in, then do so using your Arrow ID login. After you’ve logged in, go back to the email and click the link again. If it doesn’t automatically link your account, click the red “Have an invite?” button near the top, choose “Member Portal” for the application. Select your council. Then paste in the code from the email and click “Add”.
Access the Member Portal
Once you’ve linked your account, you can get to the member portal by going to https://portal.oa-bsa.org/
If you use LodgeMaster
If you use LodgeMaster, and you left the default settings on the login page, you will probably automatically get logged into LodgeMaster when you go to https://portal.oa-bsa.org/
To get to the Member Portal from LodgeMaster, click on your name in the top right corner, then click on Switch Application. You'll then get a menu where you can pick your member portal login.
