An Officer Roster must be submitted yearly to both the State and Grand Lodge.
This is necessary to ensure that local lodges receive important information,
membership cards and maintain access to the National FOP Member
Information System. If your lodge does not submit an Office Roster, the
Information System automatically removes elected officers when the TERM
DATE (completed by the lodge) expires and your lodge will no longer have access
to those functions. Please contact the Membership Department (Elesha, Victoria
or Roxie) if you have any questions on your current Officer Roster or how to
access that information, 800-451-2711.
Last Half Per Capita will be
sent out on February 28, 2018
to all lodges that have not paid
a Full Year. Last Half payment is
due by May 1, 2018. Any lodge
that has not paid First Half is
currently not in good standing
and will need to forward First
Half and Last Half payment to
become current.
