The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the flagship national Order of the Arrow event. It is held every two years at a major university campus and is attended by as many as 8,000 Arrowmen from all 50 states. It is second only to the BSA National Jamboree in size and scope. Our largest conference was in 2015, attended by more than 15,000 Arrowmen to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow.
The 2022 National Order of the Arrow Conference was held at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville on July 25-30, 2022! NOAC is the largest event in the OA, with upwards of 8,000 attendees—from more than 200 contingents—expected from across the country.
NOAC is filled with nightly stadium shows, lodges bringing victory in sports and ceremony competitions, and meeting Arrowmen nationwide, all while spending a week living in a college dorm—and yes, it will have air conditioning!
NOAC 2024 will be held at the University of Colorado Boulder from July 29th-August 3rd, 2024!
