Lodges and Temples

What is the organizational structure of the Elks?


This question is one that was asked by Grand District Deputy Emeritus Brother Joseph Melvin Smith in a booklet written by him and titled 'Welcome to The Elks' dated April 8, 2014.


Answer -


Basically, our Brothers have four main bodies - The Grand Lodge, the State Associations, the Councils, and the local Lodges.


For the Daughters there are also four main bodies - The Grand Temple, the State Association Auxiliaries, the Councils, and the Temples.
