I wanted to let everyone know how things have been progressing, the Chief has authorized us to start the payroll deductions again to make it much easier on our members as well as our executive board when dealing with the ACH debits at the bank level. Payroll deductions are error proof and are pre-taxed. With payroll deductions your dues with drop to $18 bi-weekly. We have completed our internal audit, we have come along way since January when the the new executive board was sworn in. We have completely update our Constitution and Bylaws, we have also updated the life insurance with AIL. Every member of Lodge 98 will have $2,500 of free life insurance, once the forms come in we will let all members know.
We NOW have challenge coins for Members of Lodge 98, if you have not received yours yet please let us know. If you are at 1900, please come by my office #13117 and I will give you one. We have moved to the Harris County Fraternal Order of Police building located at 3130 North Fwy. Houston, Texas 77009.
