1940's By-Laws

          Organizations typically have rules and Tamet Lodge was no different. When local Councils expressed interest in forming an Order of the Arrow Lodge, they were sent a package of information including a booklet entitled: "Local Lodge Manual". The manual contained a variety of suggested policies and procedures for organizing and operating an Order of the Arrow Lodge.
          It is believed that Tamet Lodge adopted its first set of By-Laws in 1942 although no actual copies of those By-Laws are known to exist today.
In the first Lodge newsletter dated February 15, 1943, Chief John Erhlichman references having amended the Constitution (presumably at the first Tamet Lodge dinner in the fall of 1942),  to create an Associate Member category.

1951 By-Laws  



          The 1951 Tamet By-Laws were a total re-write of the previous versions, none of which are currently known to exist. It is know that 1951 marked the beginning of the chapter organization that created one chapter for each of Crescent Bay Council district.

1953 By-Laws  

           Based on recommendations from Lodge members & officers,  the Crescent Bay Scout Executive and the Area 12-A adviser, Tamet Lodge completely re-wrote its By-Laws again  just two years later. The 1953 By-Laws were simpler, shorter, and meant to be in conformance with the local lodge By-Laws published in the Order of the Arrow Handbook. Although Tamet Lodge continued to maintain certain traditions that were not in conformance with National rules, most notably, their Warriors & Wiseman membership designations and their "no rank" requirement for membership.

1955 By-Laws  
Less than two years later, Tamet Lodge re-wrote its By-Laws again. The Lodge finally abandoned its Warriors and Wiseman membership designations to be in conformance with National Rules. Also, eligibility for election into the OA was established at First Class Scout or higher.
