Congratulations to Herley Dawson and K.K. Childress on receiving your Academy of Friendship Degrees at the VMA Mid-Year Conference hosted by the Hopewell Moose Family Center 1472

The "Academy of Friendship" is the first degree in the Women of the Moose. 

Coworkers in good standing earn this degree by being installed as a chair of a committee, or an appointed or elected office before January 31st and serve in the same capacity until the end of the Chapter year. She must also have a fundraiser and sponsor 2 new members into her Chapter. If installed after January 31st, or not installed into any position, a Coworker must sponsor five (5) new or re-enrolled members. In addition, the Chapter must earn the "Award of Achievement." Once the requirements are met and verified by Moose International, a call card will be sent. 

The Academy of Friendship Conferral Ceremony is held in February at the state Mid-year Conference. A Coworker is not credited with this award until she is invested in the proper ceremony. Coworkers are now able to also be invested at International Conference. 

Members who have earned their Academy of Friendship Degree are entitled to wear the light blue jacket.
