The 2018 National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is officially less than one year away. Approximately 8,000 Arrowmen will converge at Indiana University from July 30 – August 4, 2018, in Bloomington, IN to partake in fellowship, training, and shows. This past April, lodges were sent their contingent quotas and the designated 3:1 youth/adult ratio information. The NOAC 2018 Contingent Registration Information packet was recently sent out to councils, and lodges are encouraged to begin promoting and selecting their youth and adult contingent leadership in the near future. The NOAC 2018 contingent registration will open on October 2, 2017, and the deadline for councils to claim their full quota is January 2, 2018.
