The National Order of the Arrow Committee is pleased to announce that the 2020 National Order of the Arrow Conference will be held at Michigan State University from August 3-8, 2020, in East Lansing, MI.
Why should I go?
NOAC offers a plethora of activities and program for delegates, including but not limited to:
Activities, Recreation, and Competitions
Similar to a Section Conclave, every day at NOAC is stocked full of activities. From scuba diving to escape rooms to meet-and-greets, there is truly something for everyone. Every afternoon at NOAC, a large variety of competitions are held around campus. From volleyball to swimming to running, grab a team (or yourself) and come compete!
NOAC offers every training opportunity from how to run a fellowship to sustainability to empowering a team, and more! Training takes place in the morning all across campus, with some specialized tracks. Don’t forget to sign up when program registration opens up on April 1!
On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday evening, the entire conference gathers for the evening show. The shows have many elements and themes, with presentations of awards and speeches as well. It is always a fun time for all!
Inductions Ceremonial Events
Polestar, a new national inductions training initiative, will debut at NOAC 2020. Sections will send a trio of delegates (2 youth, 1 adviser) to participate in the two-day training, aimed at improving lodge inductions. Additionally, many other ICE training and activities will be offered throughout the week!
Conference Festival
On Friday, the entire conference will gather at Adventure Central for a day of fun, food, and fellowship! Lodges will set up tents where they showcase what their lodge does best. It is a spectacle you will not want to miss!
Patch Trading
Have patches? Bring them to NOAC! There is a building at the conference exclusively dedicated to trading patches. Lodge Flaps, CSP’s, Conclave Patches, you name it!
And More!
Also at NOAC, you will get to meet and interact with Arrowmen from around the country, all while experiencing one of the best events in Scouting! There truly is something for everyone at the National Order of the Arrow Conference!
