  Presidents Message January 2023

Deb, I and the FMA Executive Committee wish you and yours a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

2022 is now in the books as the best year our Fraternity has had in years and it is all due to you. Everyone worked so very hard on donations, membership, retention, training and just being a fun loving group of likeminded people. All this and more for the benefit of our children our seniors and our communities. My wish for this year is that each of you take the opportunity to visit Mooseheart or Moosehaven to receive the thanks our residents will give you. Your eyes will water and your heart will be full.

This year is jam packed full of things to do. The easiest way to see what and where is to look at the Courier and Moose Intl. calendars on line. There you will find fishing, pickle ball, pool, card tournaments, polar plunges, golf and so much more. Get involved, come on out and play or just watch. Our hard working committees need your support.

Now for the biggies. Florida Days in March at Moosehaven is a lot of fun. Our April Mid Year Convention offers education in many forms, fellowship and more. The Moose International convention in June is in Reno, NV. This looks to be a great convention. Then our FMA state convention in September is always a fun and busy time.

September through mid December our numbers are impressive. FMA membership is up 2467 new members and growing each day. However our expired and dropped numbers also grow.

Why aren’t we meeting the members expectations? Any ideas, please feel free to let me know. Please remember to inspire, engage, look higher, think bigger and expect more. Thanks everyone for your support and all that you do.

I hope everyone enjoyed the Holidays.

At the time of this writing the Moose Fraternity was up in membership once again. Current total of fraternal members was at this time 852,547. The FMA of course was showing how it is done. Let’s keep this going and have every lodge at plus one every month. We can achieve this by working to keep our retention rate at 80%. Remember, every month we let members expire makes it that much harder to get them back and to finish this fiscal year at plus one. Work last month’s expired list. Always contact those that have not renewed by the 15th of each month. After all retention means not letting them expire to begin with. Send them a quick pay link in an e mail or text.

I know lots of lodges have something in their lodge to incentivize members to join or sponsor new members. But what are we doing to celebrate when our members renew?

Look at your deposit lists and see who has renewed and send them a simple email saying, “Thank you for continuing to support Mooseheart, Moosehaven and your lodge.”  Maybe have a raffle each month for a $25.00 bar tab. If you renew, your name goes in the drawing. If you sponsor a new member your name goes in. If you sponsor 4 new members you get 4 chances to win. Put new members in the drawing as well. Send them a welcome email with a lodge calendar of events and explain they are in a drawing for the bar tab. Great way to get them to come in. Also you will find out right then if the email is a good one.

Keep your lodges busy and fun. Make it a place your members want to show off to their friends and family and ask them to join.

Thank you for all you do every day to make our lodges the best they can be!

Roy Rawlings, FMA Liaison
