Training At Momentum Launch

Trainings are an essential part of our beloved organization, as they give Arrowmen the proper knowledge to not only be an effective leader but also to plan and execute successful events. Within the virtual Momentum Launch 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 help improve your lodge’s structure, program, and operations. The broadcasting schedule for Momentum Launch follows two simultaneous streams, so participating Arrowmen will have two training to choose from at any time. The following summarizes all of the trainings being offered at the virtual event:
