Ceremonies at Conclave 2015 will largely be focused on involvement and growth. We will be striving to help more Arrowmen get into ceremonies and to give those already involved deep insights and lasting knowledge. Furthermore, we will be helping the section grow into the new Brotherhood Ceremony and will be providing extensive training on its purposes and nuances. We look forward to working with each and every ceremonialist in April!
