Tejas Lodge NOAC 2018 Application
The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow and is Scouting’s second-largest national event. In 2018, several thousand Arrowmen from across our nation will gather at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. The conference will run from July 30, 2018 to August 4, 2018. The conference base cost is $525. It is estimated that the contingent members will require another $400 to $650 for transportation, supplies and shirts and patches, but the cost will depend on the makeup of the contingent and our travel method. The contingent will probably travel from July 28 to August 5. Tejas Lodge has been allotted 14 youth spaces and 4 adult spaces. Tejas Lodge sent about 40 members to the last NOAC. Due to the low allotment, all arrowmen who want to go, will not be able to attend with the contingent, as a result your lodge leadership has implemented an application process.
Tejas Lodge will accept applications between September 1, 2017 and September 22, 2017. Once the application period is closed the lodge leadership will select a cross section of youth and adults to represent the lodge at NOAC. The application form may be found under the resources tab on the lodge web page.
