2020 Grand Lodge Convention
Grand Lodge Convention will be held in Baltimore, MD starting Sunday July 5th through Wednesday July 8th, 2020.
It is each Lodge’s responsibility to send their Exalted Ruler to the National Convention; however, it is the incoming Exalted Ruler’s responsibility to complete the forms and see that the required funds are submitted to the WSEA Office by the March 27th, 2020 deadline. It is imperative the registration form and check be received by the March 27th, 2020 deadline or the Lodge will incur a $50.00 additional fee.
The Grand Lodge Convention opening ceremony will take place at 3:00 PM (Time subject to change) on Sunday, July 5th at the Baltimore Convention Center, 1 West Pratt St, Baltimore, Maryland, 21201.
The Washington State Elks will be housed at the Holiday Inn Inner Harbor Hotel, 301 Lombard Street which is only two blocks from the Convention Center.
All room reservations must be made on the form which is provided with a first night room deposit of $120.00 plus tax and the activity fee for All ER’s or Alternate. These payments must be paid by check to the WSEA office and be received by March 27th, 2020. Room rates are $120.00 Single/double occupancy per night plus sales and occupancy taxes. The hotel will NOT accept your individual reservations. Standard rooms available are all non-smoking with a standard king or two queen beds and every effort will be made to accommodate your desires (e.g. king or two queens, ADA handicapped or other special needs). All efforts will be made to house the Washington Delegation on the same and/or adjacent floors.
We want to make your trip to the Grand Lodge Convention an enjoyable one and will try to accommodate your needs as best we can. Your cooperation in filling out the forms completely and returning them prior to March 27th, 2020 will assist us to that end. Your mode of travel to Baltimore is strictly up to you, however, since most of you will be flying; make your reservations early to get the best rates and to arrive in time to attend the 4:00 PM Opening Ceremony on Sunday July 5th, 2020. Baltimore has a lot to offer in the form of entertainment, great food and historical sites. Plan accordingly.
