All Aerie & Auxiliary members your yearly dues come due on May 31, 2020. The Grand Aerie Membership Dept. will be sending out due’s reminders beginning in April, May & June. You may pay your Membership dues now, as every reminder sent out is an incurred cost to the Aerie and Auxiliary, paying early will help the Aerie and Auxiliary to not get charged for postage. You can leave your payment in an envelope with your name & amount in the Aerie and Auxiliary's mailbox at the club or mail to Cresaptown Eagles 14700 McMullen Hwy Cresaptown MD 21502, please indicate whether Aerie or Auxiliary.
FROM THE GRAND AERIE ON DUES:
"We’ve also received many questions and concerns regarding upcoming dues. The Grand Aerie has made the decision to cover the cost of the first dues reminder that is being sent out to all members who still have yet to renew. Local Aeries and Auxiliaries will NOT be charged anything for the first reminders.
At this point, the Grand Aerie remains committed to the May 31 dues deadline, with a 30 day grace period extending until June 30, and we will continue to monitor the situation in the coming weeks as things progress."
Unfortunately in this time of concern and inactivity, life continues on and this is one of those things that still have to been taken care of.
FROM THE GRAND AERIE ON ELECTIONS:
"The last few weeks have been unlike any we have seen before due to the coronavirus crisis and as we continue to abide by the orders of our respective States and Provinces, we know that many of you have important questions about operations moving forward.
One of the primary concerns is in regard to local Aerie and Auxiliary Elections. Per the Grand Aerie Constitution & Statutes, Nominations are to be held annually at the last meeting in April. Obviously, this will not be possible for the majority of our Aeries and Auxiliaries this year.
Those that are still able to meet must proceed as outlined in the Constitution & Statutes. Those that cannot meet, by order of the Grand Worthy President, should proceed in the following manner:
· First meeting after re-opening: Nomination of Officers
· Second meeting after re-opening: Election of Officers
· At least 5 days after Elections: Installation of Officers
In the event a local Aerie or Auxiliary would like to expedite this process, they may do so only by following the Constitutional requirements regarding holding a Special Meeting, found in Section 72.2.
The format and voting time for your elections must follow what is outlined in your local Aerie or Auxiliary by-laws. All current officers will remain in their respective offices until your successor is duly elected and installed."
