As most of you may have heard, beginning August 1st, cross sponsoring is now available.
What this means to you:
A man may now sponsor a woman for membership in the WOTM Chapter, and conversely
a woman may now sponsor a man in the Lodge. The procedure is no different; if
the application is for a woman the application goes to the Chapter and if it is for
a man it goes to the Lodge. There are no changes in fees or the approval process.
This does bring about a whole new scenario. Since anyone can sponsor a man or a
woman, all guests now become prospective members. Therefore they are only allowed
two visits; after that, they must join or they no longer can come in as a guest.
The only exceptions are minor children of members, or the spouse of a member. They
can always come in as a guest. They must be signed in.
As you can imagine, the logistics of implementing these changes are going to be a
work in progress. Please be patient as we try to make this transition as seamless

Your LOOM has some Good News for Dues. In an effort to recruit more members, Glendale
Lodge will waive the $20 application fee for new members until the end of April
2015. Current members can renew their dues at the reduced rate of $75 for two years
until the end of April 2015. This is true even if your current dues expire after
April 2015. The only stipulation is that the member must come into the lodge to
pay his dues directly to the Administrator, or in his absence, the bartender on
duty (who can accept the renewal payment). New members can also take advantage
of this special two year rate.
It’s that time of the year again. Elections are coming around for the Lodge and
the Chapter. If you have any interest in running for an office this year, please
contact the Senior Regent-Carol Coppersmith or Recorder-Zana Bellinger (WOTM) or
the Governor-George Coy or the Administrator-Bob Turek (LOOM).
It’s not too early to start making your reservations for the International Convention
in Nashville this year. It should prove to be an exciting and fun experience. Don’t
