We are very excited to roll out the next aspect of our new Moose Valued Veterans program, the "Valued Veteran Of The Year" honor (V.V.O.Y.). This special honor is to be bestowed upon just one exceptional Valued Veteran in each lodge and its affiliated Chapter, each fiscal year. Criteria will focus heavily on how much effort this Valued Veteran has put into both local and fraternity-wide Moose community service initiatives. The "Valued Veteran of The Year" should be the ultimate example of a Moose member who has continued their service to humanity beyond their military efforts, by serving the community through the Moose – hence the program’s motto, "Moose Members Serving Then... and NOW!"
Key V.V.O.Y. Points:
These instructions, and other important information about this process, can be found within the three attached documents:
Thank you, in advance, for doing your part to extend this special recognition to one very special Valued Veteran. Your extra efforts will not only bring recognition to your deserving Valued Veteran of The Year, but will also serve as a reminder to everyone involved of our fraternal commitment to community service.
All qualifiers earning the Director General’s Sponsors of Distinction will receive free basic registration for the International Moose Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. For each level reached thereafter, they will receive all items for the previous levels, plus the new level earned. For example, a member that reaches the 75 Level will receive Basic Registration fee and also give their spouse/friend Basic Registration for the 2018 International Convention.
Lodge sponsor credits and Moose Legion sponsor credits are separate and cannot be combined to reach each level.
Basic Registration is refunded after the close of the International Moose Convention in the same manner it was purchased.

Membership campaigns are created and implemented by the Membership Department at Moose International. Annual Membership Campaigns typically run from May 1 to April 30 and have a unique theme each year.
This year's Annual Membership Campaign is "Moose – Honoring Community Heroes". which runs from May 1, 2017 to April 30, 2018.
This year's one member award, a ‘Moose – Honoring Community Heroes' lapel pin, should be awarded by each Lodge or Chapter after a member sponsors his/her first candidate during the campaign year. Members attaining membership in the Moose International 5 Club will receive a ‘5 Club' logo static window decal and funds generated by these members will help support the purchase of two new security vehicles for the Mooseheart campus. This award is made possible by your Virginia Moose Association Loyal Order of Moose, Women of the Moose, and your state Moose Legions.
Supporting members is something that has always been important to the Moose. So, it is no surprise that our newest Virginia initiative, the "VMA Membership Campaign" program, has drawn so much interest from Loyal Order of Moose members.
The focus of this program is on recognizing the support of members within our state with an emphasis on their ongoing work to sign up quality new members and re-enrollment of great former members. Our new VMA Membership Campaign starts on May 1, 2017 and runs until April 30, 2018. Just pointing out the highlights of this program year's campaign you can receive one year's free dues, earn a "Super Sponsor" shirt, and take part in winning $2,500 in cash prizes. And, District Presidents not to be left out, you can win one year's free membership and be included in the drawings for the $2,500, if you have a plus membership within your district.
