The National Order of the Arrow Conference in 2020, or NOAC 2020, for short, is the Order of the Arrow's premier event, occurring every two years at a select University. Get excited for: Fun, Fellowship, a University experience, leadership opportunities, patches, merchandise, and a once in a lifetime experience. This conference lasts 8-9 days including travel. Special campership scholarships from our council are available for select youth. You will have the opportunity to travel through the country and you will be able to meet the National Leaders of the organization. We plan to bring a strong contingent as one of the largest Lodges in the Nation. In addition to the fun activities, there will be many practical pieces of training and competitions that Arrowmen can compete in. Some of these activities include competitions for Ceremonies and Dance, Lodge Officer Training, Chapter Officer Training, and even Native American Craft classes. You will be able to selectively choose your classes and training through the NOAERS system after you register. We will post updates on registration and merchandise designs through the coming months, so stay tuned!

Event Updates - As of 5.4.2020
The National OA Committee has made the tough decision to cancel NOAC 2020. They are hopeful to be able to offer another event called Momentum at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, during the same dates of NOAC, August 3-8, 2020. Of course, while plans are being reviewed, things are being discussed regarding CDC guidelines and the state of West Virginia’s requirements.
As a Council, we will refund any NOAC fees paid by you, directly back to your form of payment. These refunds will be processed by May 29, 2020. If you choose to have your NOAC monies paid be transferred to Momentum, we can do that as well. A decision will be made regarding that event by June 17, 2020. Should that event not take place, your money paid will be refunded by June 30, 2020. Email Leslie Staack if you'd like to be transferred to Momentum.
