The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow, and is Scouting's second-largest national event. In 2015 we celebrate the Order's 100th anniversary, and expect attendance to climb to over 10,000 Arrowmen from across our nation gather for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure, and fun!
During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a 6 day conference which includes top notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics, and special effects, and exciting programs.
The 2015 NOAC will be held from August 3-8, 2015 at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, and will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow. Arrowmen can travel to NOAC with a contingent from their lodge, or as a staff member supporting the thousands of Arrowmen attending in the conference.
The Lodge is working to ensure that Lodge members who choose to participate in the conference as a staff member are able to join in as part of the Lodge for activities during the conference, when they are free. To enable us to do this we ask that anyone who is submitting a staff application also provide their contact information to the Lodge, so we can keep you informed of what we are planning.
If you are interested in joining the Lodge contengent here are the details, as we have worked out so far;
While we do not have final costs, the NOAC chairmen and their advisor have committed to the limitting the cost to $950 per person. As with prior years we are planning the contingent fee to include
Entrance to Cedar Point amusement park on the way to the Conferenc, including two meals and a drink pass while at the park
"Wipit Wear" - to show out Lodge pride while paricipating in Class-B activities.
Contengent member recognition items
Lodge spirit items
and the conference fee of $450
Due to complex logistics, much of this is a package deal and will not be able to be separable.
