Our Lodges are Fraternal Benefit Societies....so what is a Fraternal Benefit Society?
Fraternal Benefit Societies are membership groups that unite individuals with a common bond, provide them the ability to secure their families' financial security through a variety of life insurance and investement products, and form one of the nation's most effective and efficient volunteer networks.
How do I become a member?
Membership in the Association is open to anyone who is supportive of the purpose of the Association and who purchases a WFLA life insurance or annuity product. When you become a member, you are entitled to member benefits (vist www.wflains.org for details). You are also assigned to a lodge and have the opporunity to work with a group of volunteers who collectively serve the needs of others in the communities where you live and work.
What do members do in the lodges?
WFLA lodges are uniquely positioned to deliver meaningful community services in their own areas. Most of their important contributions are made to local groups that would struggle without that support, including food banks, shelters, veterans, and victims of naturual disasters. Our volunteers supplement the social services provided by overburdened government agencies-serving children, the elderly, veterans, the underprivileged, and others who need help. Local lodges help with projects such as community fundraisers, activities to preserve the environment, and partner with local schools to provide school supplies and support children in need. The lodges also provide members the opportunity to participate socially in fun family activities, such as ball games, picnics, festivals, and parties. Belonging to a lodge can provide you with a social outlet as well as the opportunity to give back to the community.
