Membership Rewards Program
Final Phase for 146th Grand Parlor
By KRIS NELSON
Chairman of the Membership Committee
The 146th NSGW Grand Parlor is just around the corner in May and it’s time to submit requests to Grand Parlor for all NSGW brothers who have qualified for any of the Grand President’s Membership Reward programs. These requests should be submitted to the Grand Parlor offices by May 1, 2023.
Each parlor Recording Secretary should submit a list of each brother who qualifies for a reward to Grand President Jeff Schmidt through the Grand Parlor offices. Email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. If a brother has already earned and received a Reward, then there is no need to submit a request.
Individual Membership Rewards will be presented at the parlor level if the Grand President has a scheduled visit to your parlor or a nearby event. Otherwise these rewards will be handed out to the parlor delegates at the Grand Parlor in May. The Grand President’s Parlor Membership Rewards will be calculated just prior to Grand Parlor in May and presented at the Grand Parlor during daily session.
Grand President’s Rewards for Individual Members.
Grand Presidents Belt Buckle Reward. If a new or existing brother brings in two new and or reinstated members, they will be rewarded with a Grand President’s belt buckle.
Grand President’s “On the California Trail” Challenge Coin Reward.
If a new or existing brother brings in a third new or reinstated member, they will receive a Grand President’s “On the California Trail” Challenge Coin.
Grand President’s “Good of the Order” Reward.”
The Grand President will reward individual members who have worked for the Order and have gone “above and beyond” in their efforts on behalf of the NSGW in general, and/or their individual home parlor and reward them with a Grand President’s belt buckle.
Grand President’s “FLC” Pin Reward.
The Grand President will be awarding an “FLC” pin to brothers who actively participate in their parlor, and/or Grand Parlor events during his term. These are to be presented by the Grand President at parlor or Grand Parlor events in front of the membership at large.
These are intended to reward and encourage the brothers to get actively involved in our activities and projects.
