2020 Annual Meetings Moved To Reno

Brothers & Sisters,

Over the last 10 weeks, our lives have changed considerably. In the face of this global pandemic, we were forced to temporarily close our Aeries, cancel many of our annual State/Provincial Conventions and miss out on valuable time with our Eagle brothers and sisters.

After substantial discussions with state, county and city officials from Washington, it has been determined that we will be unable to hold the 2020 Fraternal Order of Eagles International Convention in Spokane this July.

However, we will be holding our Annual Meetings in a limited capacity in Reno, Nevada, at a hotel to be announced in the coming days. The dates for the meetings, July 20-23, will remain the same. Information regarding booking rooms and reserving scooters will be made available as soon as possible.

This will include ONLY the Grand Aerie and Grand Auxiliary business sessions, nominations, election of officers, the Memorial Service and the Installation. The Grand Aerie will NOT be holding evening banquets/events, Ritual competitions, training courses, vendor experience opportunities, merchandise sales or hosting hospitality rooms at this Annual Meeting.

This decision was not made lightly. However, we feel that limiting the meeting to the necessary business functions of the organization is in the best interest all attendees.

Members who booked through our room blocks in Spokane will be receiving room cancellation notices from our hotels within the next few days.

Those who are unable to attend due to the new location and those who have paid for banquet tickets will have refunds processed by the Grand Aerie Accounting Department as soon as possible. Due to the large number of refunds and our annual audit, this process may take a few weeks and we would appreciate everyone’s patience as we work through refunding these payments.

Though it may be difficult to see now, this global crisis has shown us the power and importance of being an Eagle. Through tremendous hardship, you have repeatedly risen to the challenge, assisting your communities with meals, resources and supplies to help those in need. You’ve found ways to adapt and keep our Aeries and Auxiliaries together as a family in spirit, despite our inability to gather physically.

In 122 years, we have weathered countless storms and the situation we currently face will be no different. We are strong and determined individuals committed to making a difference and no pandemic can dull those characteristics.

We look forward to seeing you in Reno next month and if you can’t attend, then we hope to see you at the 2021 International Convention in Phoenix, Arizona. May God bless you all and we’ll see you again soon where Eagles fly!
