Reinstate vs. Re-enroll

If you reinstate, by paying back dues and dues in advance, you retain your years of service into the fraternal unit you are expired in.  If you re-enroll, you lose your years of service and pay the application fee and one year of dues.

You may re-enroll into any fraternal unit, while you can only reinstate into the fraternal unit you are expired in.  You also need a sponsor to rejoin.  It is often cheaper to re-enroll, but are your years of service important to you?  If so, reinstating your membership is the way to go!  Remember, you only have 24 months from the time your dues expire to have the option to reinstate.  Either option is handled by submitting an application and required monies to the fraternal unit you want to join.

New changes to Reinstatement &. Re-Enrollment:

The Moose Fraternity’s General Laws now allow expired members additional options to renew their membership once their dues have expired.

Any person whose dues have expired, but are within six months from their dues expiration date, must:

– Pay dues, which will continue their membership from the date of expiration shown on their most recent membership card

**Action: Remit dues to Dues Procession Center

Any person whose dues have been expired between six months and one year may:

– Pay dues, which will continue their membership from the date of expiration and will maintain their years of service in the Moose

**Action: Remit dues to Dues Processing Center

– Re-Enroll in their original Lodge/Chapter or any Lodge/Chapter; however, they will lose all years of service in the Moose. The new dues expiration date, however, will not occur until one full year from the enrollment date reported by the Lodge/Chapter and Moose International

**Actions:
– Submit official application, circling the application type as re-enroll
– Remit necessary application fee/dues
– Sign Former Member Acknowledgement

Any person whose dues have been expired for more than two years must:

– Re-enroll in their original Lodge/Chapter or any Lodge/Chapter, losing years of service

**Actions:
– Submit official application, circling the application type as re-enroll
– Remit necessary application fee/dues
– Sign Former Member Acknowledgement

ATTENTION: Administrator/Recorder: If an applicant is applying as a re-enrollment to his/her original Lodge/Chapter, a re-vote by membership is required. If re-enrolling into a different Lodge/Chapter, the applicant must be approved by the Application Review Committee and Lodge/Chapter membership. The Former Membership Acknowledgement must be signed.
