STEP 2 – INVESTIGATION MEETING
Your application will be read at a regular Lodge meeting. You will be informed of the investigation meeting, which is very informal, by the Lodge Secretary either by email or snail mail. These meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month, unless it falls on a holiday, at 7:00 pm. If you cannot make the meeting, an alternative arrangement can be made.
STEP 3 – DELIBERATION & NOTIFICATION
After the interview is concluded, the committee will report to the Lodge concerning your membership and a vote taken. When the vote is concluded, you will be notified and asked to present yourself and your spouse for Orientation and you for Initiation. During Orientation you will learn more about the Order’s programs and charities. You will also be informed as to what takes place during Initiation.
After initiation as an Elk, you can take part in all meetings and social functions of the Lodge. If for any reason your application is rejected, you will be notified in writing. You can submit a new application for membership after six months from the date of rejection.
Local lodges are everywhere and can be found using the online directory to locate a Lodge near you.
