The State President’s Motto:

The State President’s Monthly Message: 

January 2021

Members all:

Well, it is the start of a new year and hopefully the ending of the most disastrous and deadliest year in our history. I hope everyone had a joyous and peaceful holiday. We as Elks have experienced the hardship of trying keep our lodges open, safe, our finances stable, and our Membership intact. I know you have tried everything possible to achieve those goals and as President I hope I have been able to provide some assistance and leadership during these stressful times. I know Joann and I have traveled to so many lodges and always come away with pride at what our association is doing as a whole. We can only pray for a better future this year.

During the month of January, the Arizona Elks Association will be conducting the Leading Knights Clinic in each District. This is not only for the Leading Knights but for any member in good standing that would like to attend. Find out how your Districts and State Organization are doing. Contact your District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler in your District and find out the time and place.

Also, we are dedicating the month of January to regaining our delinquent membership back. I included along with our District Vice Presidents and District Deputies will be focusing on contacting each lodge and coordinate with the lodge membership committee to find out exactly what is being done to reduce our delinquency. So, lodges be prepared to respond to our inquiries with what ever plan you have available. I will be sending out a directive to each lodge asking for information concerning  your membership committee and committee chairperson.

We must have some type of plan in place to stem the flow of delinquency. The Order of Elks as with other organizations are suffering in membership retention. I believe if we have a plan and work that plan we will be able to regain some of our members.

God Bless our troops, God Bless our First Responders, and God Bless America.



Rich Botkin, President
Arizona Elks Association
