Grand Lodge Convention Central

 July 2-5, 2023

Grand Lodge Convention








The Elks Grand Lodge Convention will take place from July 2-July 5, 2023 at the Minneapolis Convention Center located at 1301 2nd Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55403.

This will be the 158th Grand Lodge Session, where Elk Members from across the country will meet, pass changes to the laws of the Order, and in general have a great time learning about Elkdom.

Many Maine Elks Association members will be traveling to the event, which is required for all Exalted Ruler’s and District Deputy Designates.

This year will be special for the Maine Elks Association as Bruce Hidley of New York is serving as the Grand Exalted Ruler. Upon retiring as the national president, he will serve as a Sponsor in Area 1.

Also, the Maine Elks will be competing in the National Ritual Competition. We will find out who will represent Maine when the State Ritual Contest is held in February 2023.

If your a member, and you’ve never been to the Elks Grand Lodge Convention, it’s a great experience, and you will meet many great people from across the country.
