The Moose has different districts all over the state of Virginia. These districts help in the everyday running and distribution of great ideas for our fraternity. We invite all members that wish to contribute more to our fraternity to attend our next district meeting! Below you will find information on District 9 meetings. We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting.

What does your Moose Fraternity mean to you?

Yes, we are an organization who care for the young children at Mooseheart, seniors at Moosehaven, and help local organizations with charitable donations of time and money.  But we are a fraternal unit of men who come together to grow our organization and encourage our members to be successful within our local lodges.

At this time of the year, our lodges form a nominating committee and they start to think about nominations of candidates for the upcoming year's board of officers.  This nominating committee needs to realize that commitment, time, energy, accountability, and dedication to our Moose Fraternity are traits these candidates need to possess.  Some of these positions may be called upon to fulfill additional requirements if another officer is ill or cannot perform their appointed position.  All officers are required to take leadership training classes which are structured to educate the officers on fraternalism and lodge financial operations.   By using and applying this knowledge, they will help "Build our Foundation" of members.

Another very important part of the Moose organization is the Moose Legion Committee.  This committee takes on the leadership role for the lodge as members are asked to join and become Moose Legionnaires.  From this fraternal committee come our potential Fellows and Pilgrims.  Those who have earned these prestige higher degrees need to be the leaders of their lodges giving guidance,  being mentors, and showing encouragement to new members.  Moose Legionnaires are known as the men who get things done while having fun and fellowship.


As we begin our new moose year, it has become apparently clear that our primary focus will be on building our lodges’ membership, and our foundation in order to support the fraternity’s core values.

Now is the time our lodges should be concentrating on doing an inhouse campaign to sponsor new members or re-enroll former members. We need to be pro-active NOW and not wait for the application fee to be waived. This is something we can do! Summer time is when we see our friends at the lake, and other social events. We can make a difference by just talking "Moose" and asking them to join our fraternity. Let’s build on our other campaigns below.

We have been given the tools from Moose International with a campaign called, Moose-Build Our Foundation. There are incentives in place to sign members. Look in your lodges to see all the details.

Virginia Moose Association has three campaigns (VMA Sponsor Membership Campaign, Lodge Retention Campaign, and District Presidents Program) in place to create membership in your lodges. Look for the campaign flyers in your lodges and find out how you can be in the money as it pays to sponsor or re-enroll members.

Contact your lodge administrator, governor, or membership chairman if these are not posted.
