NOAC 2022 Lookback

What’s in store for NOAC 2024? We caught up with some Arrowmen across the nation who attended NOAC 2022. They shared what their NOAC experience was like and why they should look forward to going to NOAC 2024 at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Kadyn B, Kanwa Tho Lodge, Three Harbors Council:

“NOAC truly is something you could call a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Through NOAC I had the opportunity to form a stronger bond with my fellow lodge members as well as meet people from all over the country. From patch trading to late-night shows it seemed NOAC always had something you could be doing. I took away a lot from NOAC, some of the things I took away came from the many training sessions that I attended. I attended a training where we talked about membership retention and others that dealt with leadership and communication. NOAC also gave me friendships and memories that will last me a lifetime.”

James R, Tecumseh Lodge, Simon Kenton Council:

“NOAC 2022 was an amazing experience. I had the opportunity to meet people from all across the Order. After attending NOAC, I could recall 37 states from which I met someone. There was valuable training in the morning like Polestar, amazing activities in the afternoon such as the zipline in the street, and the shows every night in the basketball arena were cool.”

James L, WaLaMootKin Lodge, Blue Mountain Council:

“NOAC 2022 was one of my favorite OA events. From the moment we got there, my biggest worry was that I would miss something because there was so much to do. I spent a lot of time patch trading during the day and staying up late after the shows to trade with my contingent. My favorite day during the conference was during the Ignite Festival when I and my other lodge members went and had fun doing the activities and scoring points in the game. We had so much fun hanging out together and meeting other OA members and I can’t wait for this year’s NOAC.”
