Welcome to the Missouri Elks Association website. My hope is that you will find the information on this site to be both informational and inspirational.
I am honored to have been elected to serve as President of the Missouri Elks Association for 2019-2020 and look forward to seeing each of you in the coming year. My motto for the year is "Lead by Precept and Example." Whether you are a PER or a "new" Elk, we should each live by the cardinal principles of our order: Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love, and Fidelity. These principles should become a part of the fabric of our lives, not just when we are at the Lodge or during a Lodge meeting. The example we set in our communities, our jobs, our families, should inspire others to join in the good works of our Order.
There is a lot of information on this site, and it is frequently updated. I invite you to visit the site often to stay "up to date" on what is going on around our great State.
See you at the Lodge!
Don Cook, State President
