TIME TO ‘CHART YOUR COURSE” FOR OUR ANNUAL CONVENTION
Plans are being made and finalized for our Annual Convention to be held in Pasco on September 14-16th at the Red Lion Hotel. Building on the theme of “Moose on a Mission”, we want to Chart our own Course into the future and expansion of our combined Association.
We’re proud to be welcoming General Governor T. Michael Leuer from the Supreme Lodge as the official Loyal Order of Moose Visitor; and one of our favorite Oregonions, Past Grand Council Member Molly Brown as the official Women of the Moose Visitor. Let’s all come out and show them a warm Washington/Northern Idaho welcome.
Some of the items on the agenda for the upcoming event are:
Stuffing over 250 “Buddy Bags” for foster children (see link in Joe’s article for what to bring)
Working at or in the community for the Union Gospel Mission
Collecting socks, hats, gloves for the Union Gospel Mission
Friday night fun night while we stuff bags, collect items and raise money for Safe Surfin’
Please note: The Community Service event off site will be on Thursday Afternoon starting about 4 PM. If you wish to participate, please get to the hotel by Thursday.

Bob, Heather and I have been working on a draft agenda for our first joint meeting where votes will take place. There is a lot of business we have to conduct at the Annual Conventions as a corporation in two states. We will have more sessions than we have ever had, but they will be shorter. We will be doing all the usual fun stuff and the leadership will do its best to keep the meetings moving so you can get out and socialize. Doug, Carole and Bob are planning a fantastic 25/5 Club party for those that earned it in the last year. Congratulations and thanks to those that did.
For each of us, this meeting will be a huge change. Women will be able to make motions and seconds, vote, and even run for office. I predict that we will have our first elected female officer in our history. This may not be 1920 when women got the right to vote in the US elections, but within the Moose, it is pretty darned close. Why did it take us thig long? I can tell you that it took a long time because of some traditionalists we had in leadership roles well above all of our heads.
Did you know that the road to WOTM joining the Association was started back in 2010 when the
Supreme Council approved changes to the General Laws that allows the WOTM to join? It took us seven years to do it, but we were the first to take them up on it. Please don’t forget that we had the support on it from the very top in Scott Hart and Barb McPherson. There is no way any of this would have flown without their support. I am thankful for their leadership on this and many other ideas they are working on.
I look forward to finally getting to vote side by side with the ladies who have always done so much for the WSNIMA. I hope everyone shows up in Pasco elated that we are the leaders getting to take this path together. I am very proud of everyone and can’t wait to see you.
