- What does NOAC 2020 offer to first time attendees? Excellent training is offered every day on a wide variety of topics and interest areas by many outstanding trainers who are experts in their fields. In addition, attendees can attend or participate in ceremonial competitions—this is a great way to pull in a new ceremonialist! Opportunities to compete or watch dance competitions are another highlight of the conference. There will also be an outstanding evening show nearly every night in the MSU arena. Look for other first- time attendee opportunities that will be announced following the December 27-30 national planning meeting.
- The 2020 NOAC promotion video will soon be released for use at lodge events later this fall. This will be a great promotion tool. Expect to receive this video by mid-November!
- Outdoor adventure provides lots of opportunities for interactive activities for your Arrowmen. Things like BMX pump bikes, rock climbing, gear displays and so much more will be available at NOAC 2020!
- The NOAC 2020 theme will be determined during the national planning meeting by the section chiefs in lat December. If lodges wish to tie this in with special flap or patch designs please wait until early January 2020 to have the theme!
