Information for Professionals


Every two years, some 7,000 Order of the Arrow members from around the country have the unique opportunity to gather together for the National Order of the Arrow Conference ("NOAC"). This six-day adventure is unlike any other event in Scouting, and participation is reserved to just OA members.

NOAC provides a great opportunity for the members of your OA lodge to learn more about the OA and Scouting, to get to know other members of your lodge, and to make new friends from around the country. Most of all, the lodge members who attend NOAC will return with new knowledge and enthusiasm for the OA and for Boy Scouting. They will be motivated to serve as leaders for your lodge going forward.

To better understand a NOAC, take a look at the events and activities participants enjoyed at the last conference: NOAC 2006 Memories

This website will provide information and tools to help you support your lodge leaders as they prepare for NOAC 2009. In addition to information on reservations and how to apply of staff, you can find promotion flyers, posters, and videos. More information will be added as the conference plans are developed, so check back from time to time to get the latest details.
