Virginia Women of the Moose State Information
Moose International Women of the Moose Chapter Advocate -
I hope each and every one of you have a great Thanksgiving. It is that time of year that we celebrate with our families and friends. Please be safe and enjoy your time. Let’s us not forget about our children at Mooseheart, our Seniors at Moosehaven and the soldiers fighting for us that may not be home with their families this year. Please say an extra pray for them this season.
MID YEAR CONVENTION
***ROOMS**** - will be available to be booked at 9:00 on Monday the 13th.
1. WOTM Luncheon
There will be a Women of the Moose luncheon in January at the Mid-Year Conference and I hope to have a WOTM session after Friday's meeting if time allows. Tickets for the luncheon will be on sale thru the pre-registration with the VMA and there will be only an additional 25 tickets to be purchased on site at the Conference. If you are able to pre-register, please get your luncheon ticket at the same time (this will help us plan for enough lunch meals).
**Board of Officers** if you could please get a count of the possible Sisters that may be attending the luncheon and send me this count by January 9th, it would be greatly appreciated.
If you’re Chapter would like to donate a gift card or a gift for a door prize at the luncheon, please let me know by January 16th. (email or call)
2. Academy of Friendship
The 1st meeting in February you will read the slate of names. (If you do not have all of the positions filled, you will read those you have. For the vacant positions you will announce the vacant positions and date for the next nomination for those positions only. The 1st meeting in March you will hold elections and in April your installation.
If you have any questions after reading the Nomination and Election book, please reach out to a collegiate or past officer in your chapter, Past Deputy, Trainers or myself. It is better to do it right the 1st time than having to re-do it all over and be behind the eight ball.
CHAPTER RALLY DAY
The Chapter Rally Day will be held at the Holiday Inn- Greenwich in Va Beach on February 23, 2024 Remember you need to have someone from your chapter in attendance to get credit for the Award of Achievement.

***If you could get me an approx. count of how many are coming from your chapter by 2/1 so I can order the giveaway, i would greatly appreciate.
