The National Order of the Arrow Committee is pleased to announce that the 2020 National Order of the Arrow Conference will be held at Michigan State University from August 3-8, 2020, in East Lansing, MI. MSU is home to three past NOACs, including 2006, 2012, and the 2015 centennial conference. See you at MSU in 2020!
We no longer have quotas to attend the 2020 NOAC, but we suggest a 3:1 youth/adult ratio. There is plenty of room for all to attend regardless of being a youth or an adult. We are also prepared to host female and male youth program participants.
Each council will be led by a youth and adult contingent leader. The adult contingent leader will be the primary point of contact for the conference and may or may not be the lodge adviser. Each council should consider appointing their adult contingent leader as soon as possible and no later than October 1, 2019, when the registration process begins.
The Order of the Arrow has published a document to provide contingents with the information they need to register for the 2020 NOAC.
As the 2020 NOAC approaches, the marketing team is using a series of emails called Callouts to help lodge leadership prepare for the event. Past Callouts can be found below.
