The mighty Pa-Hin Lodge is the second largest Order of the Arrow lodge by geography. Pa-Hin covers a territory of 93,112 square miles, 76 counties, 4 states, and 2 time zones.
Each chapter has a Chapter Chief, an adult (volunteer) Chapter Adviser, a professional Chapter Staff Adviser (usually a District Executive), and additional officers and advisers as appropriate. Chapters bring the Order of the Arrow program to the local units.

Where Are Chapters 2, 6, 7, And 9?
We aren’t sure what happened to districts 7 and 9, or if they ever actually existed. If someone has information on these “lost” chapters or has information on the chapters that existed under the four lodges that predated Pa-Hin, please let us know!
The current Chapter 14 used to be referred to as Chapters 14 and 15 but it operated as a single chapter. Chapter 15 was the North Dakota side of the district and Chapter 14 was the Montana side.
