More About NOAC
During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a six-day conference which includes top notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, and 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. The conference fee is $475 and includes housing, food, and program activities. It does not include travel costs. 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.
In the coming months you will find everything you need to know about NOAC 2015: how to go, what exciting opportunities await you, and the plans for the conference. Follow us on Facebook to stay up to date with information and announcements.
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.
