As always, your safety and the safety of all our members, volunteers, and employees is our top priority. We know there are questions and concerns about how COVID-19, commonly known as the coronavirus, could affect the National Order of the Arrow Conference and other upcoming Order of the Arrow events.
Dear Arrowman, We’re writing to share more information with you regarding the National Order of the Arrow Conference, or NOAC, for short! NOAC is a week-long gathering of members of the Order of the Arrow, typically held every other year in early August on a college campus. In 2020, NOAC will be held August 3-8 at Michigan State University. More than 8,000 Arrowmen from all 50 states attend NOAC, making it the largest Scouting event in 2020. NOAC consists of both training and fellowship and is the pinnacle event in the Order of the Arrow!
As the National Jamboree is fast approaching, so is the opportunity to join fellow Arrowmen to serve as a member of Operation Arrow! By cheerfully serving you’ll have a variety of experiences to choose from, all while contributing to the Scouting program. We hope to see you at the 2021 National Jamboree serving alongside our brothers!
