The Shrine Treasurers Association (STA) has two business meetings each year. Legislation and other business may be considered at either of the meetings, however the Midwinter meeting is reserved for election of officers and an educational seminar. The Annual July meeting is typically the meeting where we consider the adoption of our budget in addition to legislative matters and the briefings from the Imperial officers regarding matters to come before the Imperial Session.
For information on either of the two scheduled meetings select below for detailed information, including Registration form and Agenda.

STA holds its Annual Meeting in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Imperial Council Shrine International. At that meeting we handle the business of the Association, however most of the business is handled at the Midwinter seminar.
