Brothers,

This is a notice to all master masons of Oriental Lodge No. 33.

Recently Brother Secretary returned the annual memorandum to the Grand Lodge identifying the dues amount for 2019. The amount was $145, voted on in the February 2019 at the annual meeting, and does not reflect the per capita from the Grand Lodge.

Upon returning said memorandum the Grand Secretary advised that Oriental’s change to the Paragraph 19 of the bylaws is in fact a violation of the Grand Lodge of Illinois’ regulations. While well-intentioned —changing the annual dues amount easier and forcing the lodge to review this policy annually— it is not permissible.

Currently, our bylaw reads as follows:

Paragraph 19. The Annual Dues shall be set by an Act of the Lodge, by a paper ballot at the Lodge Annual Meeting. A 2/3 majority of members present at the annual meeting shall be required to pass an adjustment in dues. If no measure is passed, the Annual Dues will continue at the previously set rate. Dues are payable on the first day of each calendar year. The obligation of Lodge members to remit Annual Dues will commence on the first day of the calendar year following the date of raising, or the date of affiliation.

The Grand Lodge has advised the regulations require a specific amount to be stipulated in the bylaws. The GL has invested additional time and resources to review each lodges bylaws and has determined we are not currently not abiding by GL regulations. As such they will not send us our dues cards until this is corrected.

Should we not correct this immediately, every member of OL #33 will be incapable of visiting any lodge as no brother will be able to produce a current dues card except those that are lifetime members.

It's is imperative that we address this issue at the September 10, 2019, stated meeting ensuring the dues cards are sent in October so they can be mailed at that time to the Brethren.

The proposed bylaw change reads as follows:

Paragraph 19. The Annual Dues shall be set by an Act of the Lodge, by a paper ballot at the Lodge Annual Meeting. A 2/3 majority of members present at the annual meeting shall be required to pass an adjustment in dues. Dues for Oriental Lodge #33 shall be set at $145.00 per annum. If no measure is passed, the Annual Dues will continue at
