Gereral Lodge Business Meeting

On December 13th at 7:00 PM at Pine Tree, Lenape Lodge will be hosting its second and final General Lodge Business meeting of the year.

Among the many important topics to be covered at the meeting is a propsed change to the Lodge Rules. The propsed change is specific to the timing and notification of the lodge and chapter officer elections.  At the October LEC, the following amendment was approved for vote by the general membership:

  • Replace Article IV, Section F, Subsection a. with new text: "Lodge officers shall be elected at a general lodge meeting held no earlier than 120 days prior to the start of the new term.  The LEC shall set the date on the annual lodge calendar.  Written notice of the meeting must be distributed to all lodge members at least 14 days prior to the meeting."
  • Replace Article VI, Section E, Subsection a. with new text: "Chapter officers shall be elected during the chapter breakout at the general lodge meeting when lodge officer elections take place as referenced in IV.F.a."

The meeting will take place during the LLD weekend, so participants at the event will already be present for the meeting.  If you are looking to attend the weekend, please sign up by clicking here.  Registration closes on Monday, December 8th.

All members of the lodge are permitted to attend the meeting, however only those members who are current on their dues and are under the age of 21 years old will have a vote in any matters brought before the lodge for vote.
