A Note from the Chief Executive Officer
Cincinnati may be in the rearview mirror, but we made some fantastic memories as we celebrated the 133rd International Moose Convention. Having our Moose family back together again was amazing! Our final registration numbers topped 4, 700 and there was strong attendance at every general session, workshop and conferral ceremony. We had plenty of TV coverage as we kicked off our Convention and even had special recognition at the Great American Ballpark as we watched the Reds take on the Cubs in a sold-out stadium.
Congratulations to David Flood of Florida and Gayle Myers of Tennessee on their honor of being selected for the Lifetime Achievement Award. Also, a special shout out to Paul Curtis for his election as Chairman of the Moose International Board of Directors. We also saw Cletus McManama installed as the Women of the Moose Grand Regent and Dan O’Neal installed as the International Moose Legion President. This year is off to a stellar beginning as our fraternity saw a membership increase by nearly 3,000 members as of June 30th. Great job by our dedicated Sponsors, who work so hard to strengthen our fraternity!
Our General Law Amendments also passed by a 93% favorable vote and we now begin looking for qualified members to fill board and committee positions. If you have knowledge and skill in early childhood education, business administration, commercial real estate, accounting, law, human resources, restaurant management and business startup success, please submit a letter of interest and resume to me by email at Lodgicboard@mooseintl.org.
Secondly, we are looking for members with a passion and drive for new member recruitment and member retention. We recognize that the foundation of our fraternity is you and tens of thousands of future Moose members. If you have a proven track record for Lodge, Chapter or Moose Legion membership creation and retention, then submit a letter of interest along with your fraternal resume to Membershipcommittee@mooseintl.org.
I appreciate your commitment to our Moose fraternity – we are proving every day that we are Stronger Together! God Bless!
