REMINDER: Lodges must submit LEF funds

BY ACTION OF delegates to the Thirty-First Consolidated Convention, all local lodges must contribute no less than 25 cents per member, per month, to the Legislative Education Fund (LEF).

The fund pays for the publication or purchase of educational materials regarding candidates, issues, and the legislative process, and for their distribution to members and local lodge leaders. Educational materials include congressional directories, issue alerts, and informational DVDs. The fund also pays for the Legislative Education Action Program (LEAP) Web site and the annual LEAP conference in Washington, D.C.

Lodges should include their LEF contributions with their monthly per capita payments to the International (all in one check). The only exception: should a local choose to contribute to LEF from its state PAC instead of its general fund, then the check should be made payable to LEF.
