The BUSINESS PRACTICES COMMITTEE shall conduct all the audits for the DDGER visitations and compile the results in an acceptable reporting format. Further, it will be the committee’s charge to devise methods and procedures to assist the Lodges of the Association to maintain sound fiscal operations.
Welcome to the Arizona Elks Association Business Practices website. As indicated in our mission statement, it is our goal to be a resource to the lodges and our Association in achieving responsible business practices and sound financial stability. You are encouraged to contact your district committee chair or myself with any questions or concerns you might have concerning recommended business practices or questions concerning the business practices in your lodge.
With the approval of our Association management and respective DDGERs, we will be conducting training workshops/seminars at our conventions and DD clinics, so look for us when you attend these sessions.
It will also be our objective to make this website a working tool. Keep an eye open for new articles and updates.
