Official Communication for July 10, 2014
Important Information for All Members as a result of
the 2014 International Moose Convention

1. All recommended General Law revisions were approved by the membership during
the votes taken Monday, June 23rd. Key changes that impact most Moose members
include:

a. The option of reducing the number of Lodge Officers. Currently, the General
Laws provide for three Trustees to be on the Board. The revision gives our
lodges the choice between the current officer configuration and reducing the
number of Trustees from three down to one. Dispensation from the General
Governor’s Office is required prior to reducing the number of Trustees.

b. Co-sponsorship between men and women. Members of the Loyal Order of
Moose can now sponsor women into the Women of the Moose, and vice
versa. Despite this change, the sponsorship rules still require an endorser from
the lodge or chapter, as well as the review and approval of all candidates.
Further, with the change in sponsorship policy, all individuals over the age of 21
are now considered candidates; therefore the guest policy of two visits before
membership is required applies to all individuals, including lady friends of male
members and gentlemen friends of female members. The only exceptions are
spouses of current members, who still have no limits to the number of times they
may visit.
Both revisions will not go into effect until Friday, August 1st, however, as
adjustments to Moose International processes need to be made to accommodate
the change.

c. Expired Members can now re-enroll after six months. Expired members who do
not wish to retain their prior years of service in the Fraternity may now re-enroll
into a Lodge after six months. They must complete an application, mark it as a
re-enrollment and submit it with all applicable fees. Only a Lodge vote is needed
to re-enroll back into their previous Lodge; while an application review and Lodge
vote is needed to re-enroll into a different Lodge.
This revision also will not go into effect until Friday, August 1st, however, as
adjustments to Moose International processes need to be made to accommodate
the change.
