Associate memberships are predicated by the associate member’s employment with a government entity, law enforcement, corrections, or public safety agency. When an associate member’s employment is terminated, their affiliation with Jim Fogelman Lodge 50 Inc ends as well. When employment is terminated and the associate member is utilizing a Legal Defense Plan in support against termination, membership will be held in abeyance pending an outcome. It is the associate member’s duty to notify the Lodge of any change in employment status.
