The Shrine Treasurers Association (STA) has two business meetings each year. Legislation and other business may be considered at either of the meetings, however the March (Mid-Year Seminar) meeting is reserved for election of officers as well as the educational seminar. The Annual July meeting is typically the meeting where we consider the adoption of our budget in addition to legislative matters and the briefings from the Imperial officers regarding matters to come before the Imperial Session.
For information on either of the two scheduled meetings select below for detailed information.
