An Opportunity. . .
During the 2019 Midyear Conference of the Wisconsin Moose Association, the Loyal Order of Moose unanimously approved moving forward with a program, inviting the Chapters within the Wisconsin Moose Association to join with them in their objective to:
- Aid and promote the purposes of the Loyal Order of Moose
- Build the membership strength of the Order
- Stimulate participation in Community Service programs
- Adopt programs and projects for the betterment of Mooseheart and Moosehaven to include the building of the Endowment Fund for the support of these institutions
- Coordinate the programs and directives of Moose International Inc and the Supreme Lodge
This is relatively new within the Moose Fraternity and is a very exciting opportunity.
In accordance with the procedures established by Moose International and the Women of the Moose, all Chapters within the Wisconsin Moose Association are now required to call a special meeting of their membership to determine if the Chapter is willing to become a part of this program and join the Association.
The Chapter will mail a Notice of Special Meeting at least 7 days prior to the meeting date to ALL Active Co-Workers.
The Special Meeting has been scheduled for Thursday June 6th at 7:00 PM. Regular Activity Meeting to follow the Special Meeting.
Muskego Chapter will be allowed 11 votes (1 vote for every 50 members, plus one for a majority fraction above an even interval of 50).
This measure will pass and be binding to all chapters in the Wisconsin Moose Association jurisdiction if there are 78 or more affirmative votes. It will fail if 78 or more votes are negative.
We are very excited about this opportunity for the members of the Women of the Moose and their Chapters. Providing this issue is favorable among the Chapters, our co-workers will have a voice in the decision of the Wisconsin Moose Association, and its districts, and would be allowed to serve as Association Chairmen, District Presidents and the elected Association Officers.
Chapters would receive the same support and service from the Assocation that the lodges do. This includes, but is not limited to new member campaigns, training and Chapter visitations and operations assistance from Moose Association officers and chairs
Women of the Moose Chapters would pay per-capita of around $3 per member per year. The exact amount would be determined by the number of Women of the Moose members joining the Association.
