National Conference

2015 National Order of the Arrow Conference

The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow, and is Scouting’s second largest national event. Over 10,000 Arrowmen from across our nation will gather for this unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure, and fun! One very special thing about this upcoming NOAC is that it will be during the Order of the Arrow’s 100th anniversary year.

Due to the anniversary, every Arrowmen who attends this conference will receive a special reversed OA sash. This sash will be red with a white arrow. In the past these type of sashes have only been given out to Arrowmen on the National OA Committee, this will be the first time in history that they will be available to the general public. Only one sash per participant and staff member will be given, extras will not be sold. Another item Arrowmen will receive is a special NOAC 2015 Promotional Patch (pictured above) that can be officially worn above the right pocket on the BSA Uniform. This is the first non National Jamboree patch to be approved by national to be worn on that area of the uniform. The lodge will receive these patches before the the beginning of 2015. In order for Arrowmen to receive one, they must make a minimum deposit of $100 toward NOAC.
