The newly designed Native Sons of the
Golden West Passport is now available!
This idea came from a “round robin session” of a Goals and Objectives Committee meeting and developed after Grand President Erik Christeson told the committee that he was going to expand the eligibility to receive a
Native Sons Belt Buckle to brothers who routinely go above and beyond the call of duty for our order.
This means the brothers that;
- Promote events
- Put together new events
- Always seem to be on the work crew and or
- Routinely travel throughout the order
May be eligible to receive an NSGW belt buckle.
The belief behind this idea is, that while sponsoring in new members is very important, but so are events and activities. Native Son events, activities, and projects are how our name becomes known in the community. It’s how that spark to join gets initiated in a prospective member, and hopefully this spark gains us that new member. The Native Son passport was born from this concept.
It’s a tool that allows you to document your travels, participation and write down your ideas. It can also be a journal for you to reminisce upon and recall the brothers from all the corners of California who opened their doors
to you in friendship, loyalty and charity.
The passport is now available on our Native Son’s website (here) and they are being professionally printed. You can download the document and print it yourself, or request them through your parlors’ recording secretary or through the N.S.G.W Grand Parlor Office. Once you’ve obtained one, take it with you on your travels. While you are at an event or meeting, have it stamped or initialed. Read the guidelines to see what other incentives the Grand President is offering and see what level you can get to by the next Grand Parlor. Have Fun!!!
In Friendship, Loyalty, and Charity,
