Winter Celebration and Vigil Nominations

Two deadlines are fast approaching for the lodge: The registration deadline for Winter Celebration and the deadline for submissions of Vigil nominations.

Winter Celebration

Winter Celebration will take place on January 18-19 at both Camp Albright in Reed City and at Ferris State University in Big Rapids. More information is available on the Winter Celebration page. The deadline for registration is January 14!

Vigil Honor Nominations

The Vigil Honor is the highest honor a lodge can bestow upon one of its members. Any member of the lodge may nominate any other member of the lodge for the Honor. The Arrowman being nominated must have been a Brotherhood member for two years at the time of the nomination, however. More information is available on the Documents page. The deadline for submissions is January 15! As always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing many of you at Winter Celebration, and we want to see as many Vigil Honor nominations as possible!

Unit Elections System Now Online

Happy holidays from the leadership of Nataepu Shohpe Lodge! We have been hard at work over the past few weeks on a brand new online system for unit elections. Our new system gives unit leaders the ability to schedule their election online and review their date, as well as allowing for the digital submission of results by the unit elections team. Everything is explained at our unit elections portal (click here). (You can also click “Unit Elections” on the menu at the top of all pages on our site to get to the portal.) This new system will allow us to be more environmentally-friendly, as we will need to use far less paper in the submission and processing of nomination forms, and it also allow much more convenience–unit leaders can view our online calendar at any time to confirm or reschedule their election. As always, please let us know (click here) if you have any questions or encounter any errors with the system. Happy holidays, and we wish you a very happy new year!
