As we approach the beginning of our yearlong centennial celebration, many Arrowmen around the country are gearing up for NOAC 2015. For the first time ever, the OA has released the design of the promotional patch for the conference, which – for one time only – the BSA has allowed the OA to wear in the place of a national jamboree patch.
Once NOAC registration opens on August 1st, everyone who registers for the conference will receive one of these promotional patches. The patches for members of a council contingent will be sent to each council once its contingent has been registered. Contingent patches will then be distributed by the OA staff adviser to those attending, while staff members will be able to have their patches mailed directly to them. Furthermore, councils have the option of buying additional patches for $5.00 each, which may be ordered at any time.
All participants and staff are encouraged to wear this patch proudly to promote the conference and to celebrate our Order’s 100th anniversary!
