On December 27, 2012, then section chief Tyler Allen made his second trip to the annual OA national planning meeting. One day later, he was elected as the 2013 northeast region chief, and has spent the last twelve months leading the region through a great year. In just a few days, Tyler will make the trip back to Dallas, TX for his third national planning meeting to end his term as region chief. It's not an easy job being region chief, but Tyler has excelled in the position and has been an excellent representative of the region.
After his term as region chief concludes, Tyler will serve as the first director of a new OA High Adventure program at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in 2014.

The Northeast Region is proud to annouce a new effort designed to assist youth Arrowmen interested in attending Order of the Arrow High Adventure programs next summer! The region has released a special, limited edition fundraiser patch set with the hopes of raising over $3000 to be distributed as scholarships to Arrowmen of the Northeast Region. Three variations of the patch are available for purchase and all funds will go directly to the scholarship fund.
From October 11-13, 2013, lodge chiefs, lodge advisers and lodge staff advisers from every lodge in the Northeast Region are invited to take part in this unique, first time event to be held at Camp Alpine in Alpine, New Jersey. The summit will include trainings and breakout sessions by position, idea and best practice sharing, information about new and upcoming programs in the Order of the Arrow including the road to 2015, and the chance to meet and hear from several special guests.
