To be a member of the Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Lodge, you need to pay your dues AND be registered with the Northeast Illinois Council. For most of you, that means you remain active with your unit. For others, you may have to renew your registration with your District or Council as a member-at-large.
Two Dues Payment Options for 2013:
Individual Dues: $15 - Includes 2013 National, Lodge Dues, and a your chapter patch
Sustaining Member Dues: $35 - Includes 2013 National & Lodge Dues, all three chapter patches, Admission to all Lodge events, EXCEPT the OA Winter Banquet - TBD
(DUES PAID ONLINE WILL ALSO INCUR A SMALL CONVENIENCE FEE-charged by DoubleKnot)
Please pay Dues by February 28, 2013
If you prefer, you can print the paper form, and return it with the proper payment:
OA Individual DUES Form 2013 (with instructions)
OA UNIT Dues Form 2013 (with instructions)
If you became an new Ordeal Member in 2012, you will need to pay your 2013 Dues.
Why pay dues?
The biggest reason to pay dues is to remain an active member of the organization. As an active member, you will have the opportunity to become a Brotherhood or Vigil Honor member, help with official service projects, receive our quarterly newsletter “Whippoorwill”, run for official positions, seek leadership opportunities within the Lodge. You should know that your lodge also supports many other activities that are part of our mission to provide service to others. For instance, we partly pay for the expenses to produce the camp promotion guide for this council. We also use your dues to build and maintain ceremonial outfits, pay for camp improvements, and support other programs. All of the programs supported by the Lodge are identified and voted upon by the Key 5 and the Lodge Executive Committee.
Your dues help us remain a vital part of the Northeast Illinois Council. So, please support your Lodge.
Chapter patches will be available in early 2013. They can only be picked up at chapter or lodge events!!!
