The Order of the Arrow is producing many activities, events, and awards centered around our Centennial experience. Many of these initivies include Arrowmen becoming active in the Order. The Section has created a campaign called #NE2A #CentennialSelfie #OA100 which will engage each member. These selfies will help complete a required item for the Arrowman Service Award (#OA100) but it will also show Section pride! If you use the hashtags, the photos will be in a completed selfie gallery on the Section website check these guys out. The way that this will work is you will take a selfie with a sash, lodge flap, or any other Order of the Arrow apparel, and then post it to facebook, twitter or instagram with the hashtags #NE2A #centennialselfie #OA100 You are encouraged to take these photos every where’s you go, land marks, sport games, lodge events, any where’s that is pretty awesome!
This year’s Section Conclave, which was serviced by Nacha Nimat Lodge, was held at Camp Nooteeming in Salt Point, New York. Over the weekend, scouts from all 6 lodges plus many guest participated in various training classes ranging from event planning to patch trading. By participating in Conclave University classes, members had the opportunity to earn an Associates or Bachelor’s Degree. Next year, the Section will be offering a Master’s degree to those scouts who show true commitment to the Section training. Classes were taught by Section officers, volunteers, and guests. Our Section was honored to have both the National Chief, Nick Dannemiller, and the National Vice Chief, Taylor Bobrow attend the Conclave, and contribute by teaching the “Centuries of Service” course.
The Conclave wasn’t just training classes. The weekend was full of exciting events and competitions including human foosball, ultimate frisbee, tug of war, dodge ball, and many more. (more…)

Description of 2014 Conclave Theme:
It is a period of war and struggle for the lodges of NE-2A. Arrowman Ryan is currently Missing In Action. He is a critical part to the war because he is the only person who knows the secret weapon to end the war. Arrowman Ryan was last seen at Camp Nooteeming in Salt Point, NY. The different Lodge Chief Generals have begun recruiting members of their team to attack Camp Nooteeming and Save Arrowman Ryan before the any of the other lodges do.
