Members make a lodge. If they are irresponsible, incompetent, unethical, unworthy, they can break the lodge. There are two kinds of members, new and old. Each has a definite place in the lodge structure. Each has a particular contribution to make and each requires special handling. Be a productive member of your lodge, help your lodge have HARMONY and LOVE.

As a member of our lodge, we share responsibility for the future of Sunset Grand Lodge. We need to demonstrate our strong commitment to our order and work on showing our community and prospective members that we are an important part of the community.

As you are working on membership plans, remember not to dampen enthusiasm with some of the following statements below:

  • This isn’t My Responsibility
  • You’ll never get anyone to do it
  • It will cost too much
  • There is too much work involved
  • You can’t teach an old dog new tricks
  • That’s not MY problem
  • Say nothing – Complain

Members are the most important part of any lodge. Without them, our lodge would have no existence. Our meeting place would be empty, silent. Your leaders would stand alone, without the followers they must have if they are to carry out their duties, your Constitution and your Bylaws. All of your resolutions would be reduced to so many words, lacking the human factor that gives them life.

The Committee has jurisdiction over all taxation, assessments, dues and other revenue-raising measures to keep the jurisdiction functioning.  The committee reviews the needs of the Grand Bodies to govern this jurisdiction and makes adjustments or addition as needed.

The monthly Ways and Means Lodge/Chapter assessment is $100.00 due by the 10th or every month.  Late fees will apply.
