Training At Momentum Launch

Join fellow Arrowman from across the nation in training sessions at Momentum Launch!

Within the virtual event, there will be plenty of opportunities to attend training sessions led by top-tier trainers from across the country that will give you insight on how to better your lodge’s structure and overall programs. The broadcasting schedule for Momentum Launch follows two simultaneous streams, channel 1 and channel 2, so you will have to strategize and choose which trainings to watch (or use the archive to watch them all!). The trainings being offered are:

  • Activation Training [1] - plan meaningful and impactful activation events, such as a new member dinner; become familiar with the resources available to you to aid in activating Arrowmen
