AIA introduces Elder Award
Check out some photos from Sunday’s American Indian Affairs (AIA) staff gathering! During this event, team leads were able to train their staff members and swap stories about how their lodges approach the influence of AIA on our Order. During the gathering, the Elder Award was presented for the first time to eight staff members who have given exceptional service to the youth of the OA through exceptional, continued and unselfish service to the AIA program.
