      October 2021 

The honor the members of the FMA have elected me to as President of our association is, a side from family, the best moment in my life. Thank you for this honor and privilege of representing you as your Florida Moose Association President for 2021-2022.

We are in full swing of “The Moose” as we have moved from becoming one Moose and now will be “Stronger Together”. Many of our sisters have taken on more rolls in the FMA as this year began. They have moved into district president’s positions, FMA chairpersons and we have our first appointed officer as asst. Outer Guard, Julie Anderson. Our Big Green Machine just keeps getting stronger as we are all working together for a good year for our great fraternity, The Moose. I am so Proud.

      I want to take this time to thank all you that have stepped up to the plate over many years as a team to keep the FMA growing. As we had some changes this year following Moose International lead. I want to thank Tony Albaugh for his years of service as sports chairperson, as Scott Duncan will be trying to fill Tony’s big shoes with new ideas. Tony has done a great job and look forward to seeing his next endeavor as one of our honored pilgrims. Rhonda Shockley has stepped into Scott Duncan’s role as membership chairperson and will bring a different perspective to this challenging position. I also thank Dan Pratt, a very dedicated FMA team member who has served several roles on the FMA team, (and it is a long list) has stepped aside as Selina Moore is now our Moose Charities Chairperson. Please thank all that have served our great association and ultimately ‘The Moose”. And please support our new team members as they will work hard to be successful. And we also want to thank all FMA Chairpersons and appointed officers for their continued dedication.

      Our Children at “Mooseheart” and our Seniors at “Moosehaven” are depending on us to be champions as always. This is where all our hearts are, if we keep that in mind and remember this is why we do what we do. Look at this way, we are helping the Lord do his miracles. Thank you everyone for their dedication to our great fraternity “The Moose”.

In closing I will say we have a big year ahead of us, and will come out shining. As the holidays come upon us Terri and I wish all our members a happy Holiday Season! God bless and I look forward to seeing you at the lodge.

Chuck Plourde, FMA President.

Retention continues to be a source of trouble in the lodges.

I want to thank the almost 1,000 members that attended the FMA convention. I hope you all enjoyed being able to get together. We tried to make things a little more fun, and I hope you felt like the meetings were fun and full on useful information. Please take all the information back and use it to make your lodges the best they can be.

Please support your new District Presidents and attend all of those meetings you possibly can. Let’s be sure every member knows when the lodge is having their General meetings and when and where the District meetings are being held.

You would be surprised how many members call me because something has happened at their lodge and they are upset they had no input before it was done. When I ask if they go to the lodge meetings, most claim they had no idea what night or time it was being held. The next thing I hear is how if something that important is being decided, why didn’t they tell all the members?

We all need to be aware of what day and time the Lodge General meetings are being held. You should also know that important decisions are made at every single General meeting. With the exception of some contracts, real estate, changes to By-laws, or large amounts of money being spent, “Special meetings are not required”.

Please attend your Lodge and District meetings and find out what’s going on. Learn all you can and share it with other members. In this fashion, you will have a say in what is done in your lodge and maybe even find ways you can help make them better.
