Now is the time for Lodge ERs to think about committee assignments! Nothing can be more important to your Lodge or your community than to select a hard- working Drug Awareness Chair. Now is not the time to simply provide a name or fill in a blank. Instead, assign the position to an Elk who is ready to roll up their sleeves.
Find someone comfortable with meeting school officials and who believes in our future—our children. COVID-19 has taken its toll on our Order and within our communities, but the work of the DAP has consistently moved forward over this time. With the introduction of vaccines and continued vigilance on the part of our membership, we are slowly turning the corner and soon will hopefully be back to “normal.”
During this pandemic, the need to teach our children about the dangers of illicit drugs and drug abuse continued to grow. As we come out of this crisis, we as Elks need to be the voice of reason and the message needs to be clear. That’s why it is essential for you, as the leader of your Lodge, to assign the work of the DAP to a dedicated individual.
Not sure of the qualities you should be looking for? Contact your State Drug Awareness Chair and ask! As we move towards the 2021-2022 Elks year, let’s make this the best ever. Your DAP stands ready to assist.
