Praying all your families were blessed with the Love and the Peace that is Christmas and Wishing you all the wonders and joy of the season throughout the New Year! Peace and happiness to all people of good will.
I hope you find this article informative and helpful in building a strong lodge through membership in the New Year!
Get started in 2021 – you have been given the brain, heart, and courage, to continue to build membership in your lodge. Let us use our brains to build our lodge membership; perhaps have a membership contest, a year of free dues, a gift card, monetary award, pay partial convention registration. Recognize members publicly or in the lodge newsletter who have recruited new members.
You should feel at home in your lodge. We should be able to share life events with each other, be they happy or sad. Most of all, we should be able to work together and for each other.
Enlighten members or learning about our organization. By being well informed about OSDIA, we can bring it to life for others who may be interested in joining. Research the Grand Lodge of California and National Supreme OSDIA to learn about its history. Know the Grand Lodge of California and National Supreme Lodges Bylaws and utilize the tools as a resource for information. Learn more from the National website and the National Supreme Lodge Program. National has materials for membership recruitment.
Focus on: Service – doing good for the benefit of the lodge, Community – action within the lodge families, community, and the world.
Now that I have suggested ideas, please engage in looking for opportunities that interest your lodge. Do some research to see what projects you can do with your local community.
Thank you to all lodges that have sent me their newsletters. This allows me to share their various lodge activities with the email letter sent out each month by the Grand Lodge Vice Presidents to each lodge president. This is a great way of keeping communications between the lodges.
May you and your lodge continue to bloom!
HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR!
