The Lodge Committee is a group of individuals responsible for maintaining and caring for The Lodge. Members of the Lodge Committee, or LC's are in charge of all activities relating to The Lodge. The Lodge Committee Chair, or LCC has authority over the LC's and has the final say relating to any and all decisions regarding The Lodge. Lodge Committee Trainees, or LCT's are members who are working toward becoming members of the Lodge Committee.
Becoming an LC
Before becoming a member of the Lodge Committee, you must first become a Lodge Committee Trainee. To become an LCT, a member must first make at least three visits to The Lodge. The member must then request the chance to make an LCT speech at a NUHOC meeting. Requests are made verbally to the current Lodge Committee Chair. The speech is essentially an explanation of why the member wishes to become an LCT. Members making a speech also must bring a prop, which has significance to them in respect to NUHOC.
After a few questions from the club, all attending members vote whether or not the candidate can become an LCT.
LCT's are given a list of tasks which must be completed. The list includes most of what is necessary to maintain The Lodge.
After completing the LCT List, and an LCT Project, the LCT requests the chance for review from the LCC. The LCT then hosts an LCT meeting and cooks dinner for all active LC's and LCT's. The candidate is interviewed by all, and the matter is discussed and voted upon in private by the LC's. If the candidate is elected into the Lodge Committee, they receive keys for life, and are responsible for opening and maintaining The Lodge, as well as ensuring the safety of those under their charge.
