To attend any Lodge events, you must have a current membership in the OA. Please consider purchasing
a Gold Card. The Gold Card does NOT cover the cost of the SR-7B Conclave. (Conclave is a section event, not a Lodge event.) Purchasing a Gold Card saves you the time of paying for each event individually (However, you MUST RSVP via online registration for each event you will be attending using your unique Gold Card event coupon prior to the published registration deadline) and saves money too!
 
Why should I pay right now?
 
If you total up all the events covered, you are getting a discount for paying in advance, and you avoid costly late fees (unless you forget to register for events).

When you total all events, annual dues and the price of a flap the total comes to $115.00:
 
* Winter Banquet: $15.00 (separate event from Fellowship)
 
* Winter Fellowship: $25.00
 
* Spring Fellowship: $25.00
 
* Fall Fellowship: $25.00
 
* Annual Dues: $20.00
 
* Lodge Flap $5.00
 
The cost of the Gold Card is just $100.00, a $15.00 discount!

This covers the individual’s fees for all four standard 2021 Lodge Events (registration for events is still required, the fee is covered through a gold card coupon code), covers their 2021 dues, and an annual gold-bordered Nayawin RāR Lodge flap.
 
2021 Nayawin RāR Gold Card Membership Registration is available online only. We regret that we are unable to accept any other forms of registration, including mailed, phoned, or “paper” registrations.
