The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE) also known as the Elks Lodge or Elks
was founded in 1868.  It is an American fraternal order and social club with nearly one million members.  With so many members and governing positions, there are many uses for lapel pins.  A basic way of identifying certain ranks is easily accomplished with our pins.

Here are some of positions found in local Elks Lodge offices:

Chair Officers

  • Exalted Ruler
  • Esteemed Leading Knight
  • Esteemed Loyal Knight
  • Esteemed Lecturing Knight

Other Lodge Officers

  • Esquire
  • Inner Guard
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Tiler
  • Chaplain
  • Trustee (5 yr.)
  • Trustee (4 yr.)
  • Trustee (3 yr.)
  • Trustee (2 yr.)
  • Trustee (1 yr.)
  • Organist
  • Justice of the Subordinate Forum

Groups like the Elks and the Masons do lots of charity work in their communities. Handing out these one of a kind pins helps boost the name recognition of the group and it shows the locals that these men are trying to do good things for their community.

Often, individual lodges create custom elk pins for years of service of their members.  For example, if you reach 5 years, 10 years, 15 years etc. you will receive a pin that everyone will recognize.  This builds morale in the group and it raises pride with members.

Some Elks pins are used during election time at the lodge.  If you are running for a certain office in the lodge, consider creating a pin to help your campaign really get your name out to other members that may not be good at associating a name with a face.
