Dues-

THE FOLLOWING WAS RECEIVED FROM THE GRAND AERIE:

"As part of our Annual Meetings in Reno, Nevada, last month, leadership of the Fraternal Order of Eagles got together to discuss possible remedies for our loss of members due to the coronavirus. On July 11, we saw quite a few members leave our rolls either through financial hardship, or simple forgetfulness as they adapt to our current state of affairs. The following changes related to membership were brought to the floor and passed by a vote of the Aerie delegates in order to help relieve some of the hardship placed on our members:The $10 re-enrollment fee will be waived until December 31, 2020, for members who were dropped for failure to pay dues this year.Any member who was dropped for failure to pay dues this year who re-enrolls before the end of the current fraternal year (May 31, 2021) will be allowed to keep their years of membership. These members will still be considered "re-enrolled" and will be subject to a vote of the membership but will retain their original initiation date. Any member dropped in a previous year who re-enrolls will NOT be entitled to having their years of membership reinstated."
