National Chief Derek Porter and National Vice Chief Greg Brown Welcome, Contingent Leaders!

Contingent Leaders,

As we began planning for the 2022 National Order of the Arrow Conference, we would like to take a moment to thank you for stepping up to lead your lodge’s contingent. As contingent leaders, you all serve as NOAC’s most important ambassadors, and we look forward to working with you in promotional efforts to make this NOAC the best one yet!

After missing out on a conference in 2020, it’s more important than ever that we gear up for an incredible week in Knoxville for the largest Scouting event of 2022! When we walk into the stadium at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville on August 1, 2022 for the opening show, we want to see the arena filled shoulder to shoulder with Arrowmen from across the country. Over the next several months, our NOAC Promotion Team will be working with you to ensure every Arrowman can attend the conference. We will share more information regarding NOAC in the coming months.

But for now, we need your help in getting the word out! 

Whether it be talking to members of your lodge about the conference, promoting NOAC at an upcoming event, or anything in between, it’s up to all of us to achieve the Road to 8000! In the coming weeks, you’ll receive a lodge promotional toolkit, exciting updates on changes to next year’s conference, and more. 

Thank you again for taking on this role to ensure an amazing conference for all of our participants, and we can’t wait to see you in Knoxville!

Yours in Brotherhood,

Derek Porter
