Grand Lodge Convention








The Elks Grand Lodge Convention will take place from June 30-July 3, 2024 at the Austin Convention Center located at 500 E. Cesar Chavez St. AustinTX 78701

This will be the 159th 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.  The Maine Elks Association is ordering MEA Shirts for all Maine Lodge officers and Association Officers to show their team spirit.  Open the form HERE to get yours ordered.

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 2024.

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.
