SO…YOU’RE INTERESTED? GREAT!
There’s a couple of quick steps you’ll need to take. Nothing too complicated and we will help you through every step!
- Complete an application (petition) for membership. You can get one from any member of our organization. If you don’t know anyone yet, that’s OK! Use the below “I WANT MORE INFO” button and send us an email. We’ll find you someone locally to help get you started.
- Your petition must be accompanied by the application fee required by the Court. Your local mentor will let you know how much this nominal fee is.
- Your completed petition is then presented at the next meeting of the Court.
- The High Priestess of the Court appoints an Interview Committee to meet with you to get to know you, provide you with information about the organization and answer any questions you may have. Don’t be worried – it’s not a job interview! Ask us about things like dues costs, what's expected of our members, or how you may be able to contribute. Anything you want to know.
- Your Interview Committee reports back at the next meeting of the Court.
- Petitioners who are found favorable are balloted upon by the membership of the Court and notified of date, time and location of your initiation ceremony.
Before you know it - you, too, will be a Lady of LOSNA, sharing in the fun an rewarding work! The process can take a little bit of time. Our meetings are held only once a month and we need a minimum of 2 meetings to complete the application process. We will do everything in our control to keep the process as speedy as possible. We can't wait to have you on our team!
