On July 5, 2022, at the Grand Lodge Convention, the delegates from Elk Lodges across the county voted on proposed Amendments to the Grand Lodge Statutes. These statutes took effect as of 12:01 AM on August 5, 2022. These are not the proposals, but the actual statutes and should be kept with your statute books until the new 2022 Statutes Annotated book is published by the Grand Lodge. The Grand Secretary’s office will be sending this to the Elk Lodges for their reference. The new amended statutes are now available in the MEA Resources Section of the Maine Elks Association Website located here.
