On August 14th 2008, the Western Region announced the final section alignments, increasing from 12 to 13, which are effective following each conclave this year, the last being Section W-4C's on November 9th.

"As part of the organizational overhaul of the Western Region we will have six physical Areas where previously we had only 4.... The official vote for the realignment by the Western Region BSA Committee will take place in September. However, due to important fall dates such as our Gathering in October, we have been allowed to announce our changes so the the Section Advisers and Section Chiefs can implement the changes immediately.

"Every section except for one* will experience change. We have been given a chance to start fresh in most of our Sections. Some have lost or gained a single lodge while a few have gained or lost more than that. Please also remember that we will be getting all new section designations."

--Mark Hendricks, Region Chief, Mike Bliss, Region Chairman, John Van Dreese, Region Staff Adviser
via Ken Hayashi, Region Committee

*Section W-1A, which coincidently includes Region Chairman Mike Bliss' lodge, Lo La'Qam Geela 491.

I personally would like to see this as an example for pehaps keeping sections intact during a region/area realignment. While it's understandable that areas are ran by professional scouters at the Area level, its nice to see some flexiblity in the management of OA sections-- especially if they are able to delegate more responsibility to the volunteer leadership.
