Can’t attend the 2018 National Order of the Arrow Conference? Here’s the next best thing

NOAC 2018 — the National Order of the Arrow Conference this summer at Indiana University — is sure to be an exceptional experience for the 8,000 Arrowmen who will attend.

Having been there for NOAC 2015, I can tell you it’s an event unlike anything else in Scouting.

But what about those who can’t make it this summer?

For the first time in NOAC history, the Order of the Arrow is offering an all-access NOAC@Home program for those want to join the celebration from afar. Watch live broadcasts from interesting places on campus, view interviews with Arrowmen, and stream activities and training sessions. NOAC@Home remote delegates will use their phone, tablet or laptop to follow the fun from anywhere.

The cost is $75 per remote delegate. And like all the best things in Scouting, this opportunity comes with a patch: a NOAC 2018 Remote Delegate patch you can’t get anywhere else.

What can remote delegates do?

The goal with NOAC@Home is to allow remote delegates to experience as much of the conference as possible. This includes:

  • A unique NOAC delegate pack, including a special remote delegate conference patch.
  • Live, produced broadcasts throughout each day at the conference (a morning broadcast, lunchtime broadcast, and “pre-show” broadcast).
  • Live streaming of conference activities each afternoon. (Interested in watching the drumming competition? Tune in live or watch the archived broadcast.)
  • Live streaming of NOAC evening shows and special broadcasts for remote delegates only.
  • Viewership into various NOAC trainings in the mornings.
  • A virtual tour of the NOAC museum.
  • Various Meet-the-Man sessions with national officers only accessible by remote delegates.
  • Viewing of athletic competitions and various recreational activities from the eyes of an on-site delegate.
  • Inside scoops and interviews looking into the planning and delivery of NOAC 2018 from the conference management team.
  • Taped playback over select activities based on demand.
  • Regional group challenges to all remote delegates for various prizes and awards.
  • Discounted prices on select NOAC merchandise.
