2020 In and Out El Bekal just finished it's 2020 In and Out! After stated meeting there was a great dinner and ceremony. Thanks to everyone who helped make this night a success. We look forward to a fun and prosperous year as El Bekal Shrine!
In accordance with El Bekal's By-Laws, (Articles 5.1 Initiation Fees) the Divan, with the concurrence of the Cabiri, hereby recommends that the Application fee for a new member be increased from $200 to $250 which would include payment for both the first year's dues and a Fez. The entire body of El Bekal Shrine will be asked to approve this at our January 4th, 2020 Stated Meeting. A simple majority is all that is required to approve this increase.
