One of my tasks in the national office is processing leader award applications (OLAL, OLT, & MOE). I am a strong believer in Royal Rangers leaders being recognized for making the effort to attend training, for mentoring boys on a weekly basis, and for taking additional responsibilities in leadership and service. These leaders should receive recognition for their personal accomplishments and ministry wins. They are helping to carry out God’s plan for boys to grow into godly men in a secular world.
As with most awards, there is an application process for obtaining the Outpost Leader Advancement Levels, Organizational Leadership Training levels, and Medal of Excellence awards. It is critical that applications be filled out completely and correctly. Unfortunately, I often receive applications that have missing or incorrect information, which leads to frustration for the applicant because additional details must be submitted. Ultimately, this leads to delays in the entire awards process.
If you are ready to submit an OLAL, OLT, or MOE application, there are steps you can take to ensure that your application is complete and accurate so it can be processed in the appropriate timeframe without delay.
