Brothers & Sisters,
Due to the coronavirus situation and that fact that many state governments have forced the closure of Aeries, we will be suspending all Grand Aerie travel for the time being, including the Grand Worthy President and Grand Madam President’s travels, and will reassess future travel arrangements on April 1, 2020.
The Grand Worthy President’s Office will be in touch with those handling previously scheduled visitations and will be keeping future visitation sites informed as this situation evolves.
Additionally, we would like to let everyone know that we are waiving the bi-monthly meeting requirements and quarterly joint meeting requirements for all Aeries who have been forced to close until this situation resolves.
Aeries should continue to pay bills during this period to the best of their ability and should follow the proper signature requirements. We are asking everyone to keep a list of these payments until your next official meeting so the expenditures can be brought to light to the membership.
Secretaries should continue to utilize the Member Management System (MMS) to process payments and make sure dues amounts are properly set in the system prior to the first Dues Reminders being sent out on March 30.
As always, we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates when necessary.
Ron Malz, Grand Worthy President
Gloria Williams, Grand Madam President
