The Section Leadership is made up of three youth arrowmen from within the eight Lodges of the Section. They serve as the Section Chief, the Section Vice Chief, and the Section Secretary. They work all year at various jobs and roles from preparing conclave to assisting the lodges within the section to put on a quality program.
