Welcome to the official page of the Lenape Lodge Executive Committee (LEC). Here you will find links to details about the elected Lodge Officers, Chapter information, and each of the Lodge Committees.  Also, there is a brief description of what the LEC is and when the LEC meets.  Links to 2015 position descriptions for our elected officers and forms are at the bottom of this page.

The Lenape Lodge Key 3 for 2017 are:

  • Jason Buffi, Lodge Chief
  • Steve Sellers, Lodge Adviser
  • Mike Perry, Lodge Staff Adviser

The Key 3 provides leadership to the LEC and helps guide the lodge leadership, and, in turn, the lodge, to meets its goals and obligations on a yearly basis.  The Lodge Chief is elected by the youth on a yearly basis.  The Lodge Adviser is appointed by the Scout Executive on a yearly basis (often times for multiple consecutive years).  The Lodge Staff Adviser is the Scouting Professional assigned by the Scout Executive to support the Lodge on a day-to-day basis.

You may email the Key 3 at key3@lenape8.org

The Lodge Executive Committee, or LEC, consists of the five elected Lodge Officers, 14 operating Lodge Committee Chairmen as appointed by the Lodge Chief working with the Lodge Vice-Chiefs, the immediate Past Lodge Chief, as well as their adult advisers, the Lodge Staff Adviser, and the Scout Executive or his/her designee. These youth comprise the voting members of the LEC; adult advisers are non-voting members of the LEC.  The committee is chaired by the Lodge Chief.

The LEC generally meets the third Thursday of every month at the Pine Hill Scout Reservation at Lekau Lodge or on the Sunday morning following a major event (check the lodge calendar). Committee Chairs are encouraged to meet with the elected officer to which they report prior to the meeting (for example, at 6:30 p.m., prior to the beginning of the LEC Meeting at 7:00 p.m.). The LEC Meeting generally runs for about an hour, depending on the business the LEC deems necessary to conduct. All LEC Meetings are open to all members of the lodge.
