The 2018 National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) will be held July 30 - August 4, 2018 at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. While it is difficult to describe exactly what a NOAC is, it can be summed up as one of the greatest OA experiences you can possibly have. NOAC is packed with fun, fellowship, and food of every variety. The Wa-Hi-Nasa Lodge will be taking a contingent with a limited number of youth and adult positions.
The youth contingent fee is is $595 and the adult contingent fee is $695. In addition to the NOAC registration fee (which includes accommodations and all meals during the conference), the contingent fees also include:
- Luxury bus transportation to and from NOAC
- In-transit meals
- Contingent merchandise including t-shirts
- Contingent hat
- Contingent patches
- Contingent sling bag
- Name tag
- Themed items to be used at NOAC
The youth to adult ratio of participants if 3 to 1 and is strictly enforced. Youth participants will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Adults will be selected based upon contingent need. A $100 deposit is required to request a spot in the Wa-Hi-Nasa NOAC ‘18 contingent which can be paid HERE. Deposits are requested by November 15, 2017.
Contingent applicants will be notified of acceptance / non-acceptance by December 31, 2017. Half of the remaining contingent fee will be due on February 15, 2018 and the remainder of the contingent fee is due by May 15, 2018.
If all spots are filled in the Wa-Hi-Nasa contingent, additional spaces may be made available (subject to an additional allocation from national leadership) on January 16, 2018. The additional spots will be made available to Wa-Hi-Nasa Lodge members in the same manner listed above. If accepted in the additional allocation, all contingent fees will be due on the same payment schedule as listed above.
NOAC Staff Opportunities
Since the adult contingent spots are limited, adults members (especially those who have already attended a NOAC) are also encouraged to apply for NOAC Staff. Applying for NOAC Staff is not a guarantee of NOAC attendance but if accepted, staff positions are not considered a part of the Wa-Hi-Nasa Lodge contingent allocation. NOAC Staff Members will be able to pay a contingent fee of $80 to receive the merchandise that contingent members will receive and will be eligible to purchase additional NOAC contingent merchandise. The Staff Contingent Fee is due by March 15, 2018.
