Tri-State Association Elks


The Tri-State Association is led by a Brother State President and a Daughter State President.  The State Presidents lead the Association and follow the By-laws and Constitution of our parent organization, the Improved, Benevolent, and Protective Order of Elks of the World (IBPOEW).  Under their leadership, several Tri-State lodges, temples, councils, departments, and auxillaries function across the Elks Organization. 

Our Purpose is simple:

Our Principles are:


To help and spread the spirit of charity to all in need of it;


To see that Justice be fair and equal in our communities;


To promote Brotherly and Sisterly Love in our organization and our commuities;


To ensure Fidelity among people.
