To be eligible for membership in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, you must be a citizen of the United States at least 21 years of age who believes in God.
You can be sponsored by any member in good standing from any lodge in the country.
You’ll also need two other Elks who will be your references.
Your application will be read at a regular Lodge meeting. It will then be forwarded to the Investigating Committee, who will call you and set up a time for you and your sponsor to meet with the committee so that they can interview you.
After the interview is concluded, the committee will report to the Lodge concerning your membership. The members will be given a notice not less than 10 days and not more than two months before the vote will be taken.
