In January 2023, we launched our BetterLife Member Groups that evolve our past Branch (Legacy National Mutual Benefit Members) and Lodge (Legacy Western Fraternal Life Members) structures into one consistent model for all.
This unified model brings together our current member-led groups under one framework of support that focuses on consistency and simplicity, allowing our volunteer leaders to concentrate on engaging members and making an impact, rather than paperwork and process.
We invite all members to review the resources and recorded informational sessions below to learn more about this new model, and find ways to get involved.
