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
