President Andrew Housley
Welcome to the New Mexico Elks Association!
With nearly 8000 members and 22 Lodges found scattered all over the State you are never far from a place to hang your hat and make some friends.
Elks are known as being the Best People on Earth. Well let me tell you that New Mexico Elks are among the finest! Giving millions of dollars each year. Investing in our communities, our children, our Veterans and practicing charity not merely in word but also in deeds. One of the reasons I joined the Elks was the comradery and knowledge that of all the Organizations none compare to the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks in its giving and patriotism.
New Mexico is the “Land of Enchantment”. As I have traveled this great State, (the fifth largest in the nation) I am never disappointed in the beauty and diverse environments and people from every walk of life. From the copper mines of the southwest to the oil and gas fields of the southeast and northwest. The Rio Grande valley through the center of the State and beautiful rolling plains of East and Northeast. Our Gila, Cibola, Carson, Lincoln, and Santa Fe National Forests are like no others. Our Pueblo, Apache and Navajo Native American Indian nations and tribes, in all 23 are found here along with descendants of Spanish settlers and European and Chinese immigrants makes for a unique and rich culture that is New Mexico and makes it truly enchanting. Our food, just like the state, is as diverse and without comparison.
Whether you are resident of New Mexico or simply passing through. Regardless of where you are, there is always an adventure to be had and Elks Lodge nearby.
