His involvement in DeMolay is intended to be both fun and rewarding. As with any organization, there are ways for him to maximize the benefit from his membership.
- Become involved. He will be expected to attend chapter meetings and activities and get involved in helping make decisions regarding the chapter.
- Approach his involvement with a positive, helpful attitude. His approach should include a willingness to learn, a willingness to help others learn and a willingness to be a part of the chapter team. Demolay members have had life experiences that have given them a unique perspective on issues. Together, the members and their advisors share perspectives and learn from each other as they make decisions that affect the operation and future of the chapter.
- Put the precepts of Demolay into practice in his daily life. Some of the guiding principles of Demolay (love for parents, reverence, courtesy, comradeship, fidelity (loyalty), cleanness and patriotism) may seem “out of fashion” in today’s society, but that does not mean that they are without merit. A young man who can impress their beliefs in this daily life will be “ahead of the game” as he approaches manhood.
- Learn about DeMolay. Part of being a good member and team player is being familiar enough with how it operates and being able to tell others about it. He will have a handbook and an “open book” course called a Leadership Correspondence Course available to help him learn about DeMolay.
