​​The first answer that comes to mind when someone asks, “Why should my club join the Pennsylvania Federation of Fraternal and Social Organization?” is that it helps many small voices become one large voice.

Each club itself is a small business. However, joined together, we find that the clubs in Pennsylvania employ nearly 50,000 people, including stewards, bartenders, janitors and cleaning people and serving staffs. The liquor we buy comes from State Stores at the highest prices
anywhere. We put more than $50,000,000.00 a year into the economy. Add to the Liquor bills the considerable amounts we can total up going into Pennsylvania’s economy for utilities and fuel, orchestras, bands and entertainment, food and cleaning supplies, and an endless assortment of furniture and machines, and you can come up with that monumental total of $50 million dollars of business done in the state of Pennsylvania each and every year. And, as non-profit organizations, we raise money for the community through raffles, bingo, etc., saving the state and local governments tax dollars that would have to be raised to support fire, police and ambulance services, not to mention all of the other community organizations that benefit from our clubs activities.

Anyone doing that kind of business deserves a voice in the legislation that governs the clubs, and favorable decisions on matters that are important to us. The only way to get these decisions is to join our many small clubs into one large Federation and work together, letting our legislators know who we are, and what we want. This will give us the clout we need to get the laws we want passed in our Commonwealth. Never think that you are not an important individual. Every single voter in the Commonwealth has a right to be heard by his or her representatives. We put them there, and we can vote them out. They are prepared to listen to your opinions, and want to hear
them for their guidance.

We look forward to having you as a member and invite you and your club to join us. Please take time to consider the positive impact the Federation could have on your club or organization, and fill out the application form (click on button below). Do it for yourself, your club and your community.
