Message from Moose International - Moose and the Coronavirus

Moose International has been monitoring the recent developments regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) that has been forefront in the news for the past month or so.  The health and safety of our members is always the top priority for the Fraternity and discussions have taken place regarding precautions and contingencies for the events that will bring members together in the coming weeks.

At this time, all events will proceed as planned, including the International Moose Convention in Milwaukee and the various ceremonies on the Mooseheart campus during the month of May.  We will be monitoring the ongoing situation and the recommendations from top health officials as those dates draw nearer.  If changes to scheduled events or activities are made, Moose International will use all of its communication vehicles, including the website, social media outlets and email communications with our lodges and chapters, to announce those changes.

Updates from the General Governor’s Office

To clarify some of the information that was sent out on Monday, the General Governor’s Office offers these points:

  • At this time, all LOOM Officer terms will be extended until June 30, 2020 with the nomination process continuing/occurring in May and the election process then occurring in June with the new officer year for 2020-21 beginning on July 1st and ending on April 30, 2021.  The General Governor’s Office will provide further detailed procedures and any updates to this schedule, if necessary.
  • All current officers whose term has been extended will act as official delegates to the May 2020 International Moose Convention.
  • At this time, LOOM meetings are to be conducted as scheduled pursuant to CDC recommendations for meeting size (10 or fewer individuals).  Quorum requirements are still applicable.  If necessary, meetings may be conducted by conference call or electronically until further notice.  Meeting minutes are still required.  The health and safety of our members is paramount; therefore, no penalties shall be imposed for absences related to viral concerns.
  • To ease the requirement of membership votes on new and re-enrolled applications, the General Governor’s Office is allowing the Lodge Officers to approve applications, if necessary, after submission by the Application Review Committee, until further notice.

  • In accordance with Section 112 of the Women of the Moose General Laws, the Chapter has the right to choose it’s representative to attend the International Conference.  If the incoming Senior Regent has already been chosen to attend, she may still do so.  If the Chapter chooses to send the current Senior Regent that is ok as well.
