The 100th Anniversary of the Order of the Arrow.
Second only to the National Boy Scout Jamboree, the National Order of the Arrow Conference is the largest event for the Boy Scouts of America. Next year, it’s your turn to go big at #NOAC2015. The Order of the Arrow is celebrating its 100th anniversary in style, with the year-long theme "Centuries of Service" uniting an entire nation of Arrowmen. Over 10,000 Arrowmen from across our nation gather for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure, and fun!
Would you like to attend the largest Order of the Arrow event in OA history? How about spending a week on a college campus with over 10,000 arrowman from across the country? WE WANT YOU TO COME WITH US FOR THIS MEMORABLE AND ONCE IN A LIFETIME EVENT.
During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a six-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.
Arrowmen attending the 2015 National Order of the Arrow Conference will get a once in a lifetime souvenir, a special edition red sash. These sashes will differ from those currently worn in that the colors will be reversed, with a white arrow emblazoned on a red sash. The rarity of the sash is noteworthy, as only those present at NOAC 2015 will receive them. Any extras produced will not be sold.
Don't miss out on NOAC in 2015, because the next one won't be until 2018! To reserve you spot in your lodge contingent talk to your lodge chief, lodge adviser, or lodge staff adviser today.
