Staff

A National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) could not function without the dedicated service of those Arrowmen who volunteer to staff the entire conference. Conference staff members will enjoy a unique experience serving the over 10,000 Arrowmen expected at the 2015 conference. While serving as part of the NOAC staff,  staff members are encouraged to experience the conference, enjoy the many activities and special events that NOAC has to offer in addition to their service.

Members of the NOAC staff pay their own way to the conference, often traveling with their own council contingent. At the conference, they are housed with the conference staff and work in a support role to help make the national conference a successful and enjoyable event.

All youth and adult Arrowmen interested in serving on the 2015 NOAC staff can apply online at the NOAC Registration Site (https://registration.oa‐bsa.org) beginning August 1, 2014. Each staff application will be electronically forwarded for approval by the Council Scout Executive or Lodge Staff Adviser. The deadline for submitting a support staff application to the national office for Lead Adviser and OA Director approval is March 31, 2015.

Staff lead advisers may be found in the conference reservation information.

A specially designed NOAC 2015 promotion patch will be mailed to staff members when their conference deposit is received in the national office. Staff members are encouraged to wear the patch to help promote the conference. A conference patch will also be sold at NOAC, and can be pre-ordered by going to the Trading Post online.

Staff Shuttle

The NOAC staff shuttle will be operated by the commercial service called "Michigan Flyer" from both terminals at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW). The shuttle will be available on all days that staff are scheduled to report to MSU and will cost $50 round trip.

It's recommended that staff should arrive between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW). This will allow for any possible delays in flights and still being able to get a shuttle during operating hours.

The last shuttles leave from DTW about 9:45 p.m. daily and it takes approximately 2.5 hours to arrive in Lansing at the Marriott. Transportation will be available to get you to the Kellogg center for staff check-in.

Information and reservation requests will be posted after April 1st.
