NOAC 2020 HAS Been Canceled - Next NOAC will be 2022

It is with deep sadness we inform you that the 2020 National Order of the Arrow Conference has been cancelled out of concern for the safety of all attending Arrowmen, as well as the Michigan State University and East Lansing communities.

Many factors were considered in making this difficult decision. We worked closely with both the local health department and Michigan State University, and determined that it was impossible under current and anticipated conditions to hold a safe and exciting NOAC. We also took into account the economic toll COVID-19 has taken on Arrowmen and their families, and came to realize that we may not be able to offer a NOAC experience consistent with our high standards for national conferences. Like you, we are disappointed that we will not be gathering in person this summer, but we are not discouraged and fully believe this is the right decision.

Momemtum 2020 - Any Interest?

There are some Arrowmen who still would like to attend a national Order of the Arrow event this summer. To meet this need, a new event called Momentum is tentatively scheduled at the Summit Bechtel Reserve from August 3-8, 2020. This event will focus on the many programmatic opportunities that exist at the Summit. Momentum will have limited space and we are asking those who meet the CDC’s higher risk group to not attend. This event will be a contingent-only event, and the cost is $545 per participant. More information about Momentum can be found here.

At present (5/2/2020) there are no plans for a Totanhan Nakaha Lodge contingent to Momentum 2020. However, the basic structure is in place for a a Lodge contingent to attend. (The dates and attendance fees are similar to NOAC 2020.) Are there Arrowmen interested in determining if attending such an event is feasible?

Due to the fluid nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no guarantee that the Momentum event will not also be canceled. However, due to the decreased size of this event and the physical layout of the Summit Bechtel Reserve compared to Michigan State University, it is hoped that Momentum can take place. A final decision if this event will occur no later than June 17, 2020.



NOAC 2020 Fundraiser Patch

Would you like to help defray the costs of our NOAC contingent? Order a fund raiser patch at the link below. This link must be copied into a browser at this time because of internal problems with the Northern Star Scouting web site. However, the link does work and the patch is phenomenal. So it is well worth the effort.

$10 of the cost goes to help out with the cost of transportation to and from the conference. Only 500 patches were made and each is numbered. This is a collectors item and will not be made again!
