The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the flagship national Order of the Arrow event. It is held every two years at a major university campus and is attended by as many as 8,000 Arrowmen from all 50 states. It is second only to the BSA National Jamboree in size and scope. The largest conference was in 2015, attended by more than 15,000 Arrowmen to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow.
Participants will return home with:
A deeper understanding of the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Order of the Arrow Obligation, and what it means to "live" these words in one's daily life.
A renewed spirit, pride, and enthusiasm for Scouting and the Order of the Arrow.
Ideas that can be used to better serve Scouting at the unit, district, and council levels.
New programs, knowledge, and skills to improve chapter and lodge operations.
Enhanced leadership skills and a better understanding of how to carry out the work of the lodge.
