  • So you want to Join the Elks
    To be eligible for membership in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, you must be a citizen of the United States over the age of 21 who believes in God.

    You must be sponsored by a member of the Elks Lodge and reside in the jurisdiction of the Lodge you wish to join. You also need two other Elks who will be your co-sponsors. The Elk who proposes you for membership must obtain a Membership Application from the Lodge Secretary.

    After your proposer fills in the required portion, you will be given the Application for Membership. Fill it in, following the instructions and answering all questions. Return the completed application to the Lodge Secretary with the prescribed application fees.

    Your application will be read on the floor at a regular Lodge meeting. It will then be forwarded to the Investigating Committee, who will call you and set up a time for you and your sponsor to meet with the committee so that they can interview you.

    After the interview is concluded, the committee will report to the Lodge concerning your membership. The members will be given a notice not less than 10 days nor more than two months before the vote will be taken.

    When the vote is concluded, you will be notified and asked to present yourself and your spouse for indoctrination. During indoctrination, you will learn more about the Order’s programs and charities. You will also be told during the program the date you will be initiated.

    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 cannot make application for membership for six months from the date of rejection.

  • So you want to be reinstated
    * It is really quite simple to reinstate your membership in the Elks.

    Reinstate in your same lodge:

    Go back to your old Lodge and ask the Secretary for an Application for Reinstatement. Fill out the form. Pay the prescribed fees.

    Your application will be forwarded to the Investigating Committee, who will contact you for an interview. After the interview, the committee will make their recommendation to the members at a regular meeting.

    After the Lodge vote, you will be notified by the Secretary. You will be required to pay a prorated portion of annual Lodge dues. Then you will be issued your membership card.

    Reinstate in a new lodge:

    Should you wish to reinstate your membership in Elkdom with a Lodge other than the one in which you were initiated, you must reside in the jurisdiction of that Lodge. Before you reinstate you have to obtain a Certificate of Release from your old Lodge. Write a check payable to the old Lodge in the amount of $25 and ask the Lodge Secretary to forward a Certificate of Release.

    When you receive your Certificate of Release present it to the Secretary of the Lodge you want to reinstate your membership with. Then you would go through the steps described earlier.

    If a Lodge has no proof of prior membership, the burden of proof falls on you. Proof of prior membership can be:

    • An old membership card
    • A canceled check
    • An affidavit signed by two members attesting to prior membership (It must be notarized)

    If you cannot provide proof of prior membership, it will be necessary to apply for membership as a new member.

  • We now accept your dues payment online. Paypal and major Credit Cards Accepted.

    You can always bring a check into the lodge.
