At her initiation, the P.E.O. star is lent to each member as long as she is an active member of a chapter. A member may have filled out The P.E.O. Wish indicating whether she wishes the emblem to be buried with her. Her chapter president should have a copy of her Wish. If it is not buried with the member, it should be returned to her chapter or the P.E.O. Executive Office. If you do not have a chapter contact, please send it with the member’s name to:
P.E.O. Executive Office
c/o Emblem Department
3700 Grand Ave.
Des Moines, IA 50312
The member’s chapter will be notified of the return.
The official P.E.O. emblem may be engraved on a member’s headstone. In addition, in the Items for Sale by Chapters in the back of every P.E.O. Record, a replica of the emblem to affix to a tombstone and a star marker may be purchased. If you need contact information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Active P.E.O. Member
To be considered an active member, dues must be paid to the member’s local chapter by the end of February. If you do not have a contact person for the chapter, please contact email@example.com.
Even if a P.E.O. member is no longer able to participate, P.E.O. members still support the ongoing work through its educational projects by paying her annual dues.
By maintaining active membership, if desired a copy of the bimonthly P.E.O. Record will be received to help a member stay connected.
