The possibility exists that a LOOM Board member could be removed from office for not completing this required training
Moose Unit Audits has also been introduced as on-line training. There is also an End-of-Module Quiz that can be taken to test your knowledge of this on-line course. Additionally for the LOOM there is also a Trustee Duties module to assist trustees in better understanding the duties and responsibilities of their position on the Board of Officers.
Have you been keeping your bartenders up to date on their Training for Intervention ProcedureS (TIPS) training? Not keeping them current can be a costly mistake for a lodge. This training can also be taken on-line using the following link: http://www.mooseintl.org/members/index.php/lodge-curriculum/. Don’t forget to use your Moose discount code MOOSEHEART2014.
It’s 990 tax time for our fraternal units. Please file your 990 (990EZ, 990N) by the required due date of September 15th. Not filing can be very costly as interest and penalties accrue daily. Go to the CNMA website, click LCL net, scroll down the right side of the page and click the Tax Forms item to access the Moose International section on Tax Forms. There is also a wonderful tutorial in the Virtual Classroom that walks you through the completion of the 990 form. Not sure what to do Call a Moose Technical Trainer for assistance. Remember failure to file the 990 for 3 years can result in a unit losing its tax exempt status. We have many units that this has happened to.
All units of the order in California are also required to file the CA199N or CA199 using either an entity ID number (WOTM & Councils of Higher Degrees) or a Corporation ID (LOOM & Moose Legions).
As the Training Coordinator for the CNMA you may contact me directly at any time for assistance. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 805-338-1305. I look forward to providing you with assistance in achieving your fraternal unit goals which secure the future of Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
