Legion Director
Robert Neff named new Moose Legion Director effective January 1, 2010
William B. Airey, Director General announced that the Moose Legion, most recently operating under Fraternal Programs, will have its own management department at Moose International for the first time since 1998, with a new Director, Robert A. Neff, an active Moose Legionnaire for 29 years and the International President of the Degree of Service in 2005-06, has been selected by Director General William B. Airey to become the first full-time Director of the Moose Legion since 1998.
Neff, 51, will assume his new duties at Moose International headquarters effective Jan. 1, 2010, at which point he will step down from his most recent Moose position, as a member of the Mooseheart Board of Directors.
The Moose Legion was operated under its own Moose International management department from 1984 through 1998, when its functions were absorbed by the office of the Supreme Secretary, and later, the Department of Fraternal Programs.

"Bob Neff has very few peers in his service to and knowledge of the Moose Legion," said Airey. "He is a first-rate fraternalist and a first-rate professional, and we are fortunate to have him come aboard in this position. I believe the Degree of Service cannot help but thrive and grow under his full-time leadership."

Neff joined Lockport, IL Lodge 1557 at age 21 in 1979 and elevated to Mecca Moose Legion 9 in 1980. He served ten years on his Lodge Board of Officers, including three terms as Governor; and through the chairs of Mecca 9 as well.

An active Moose Ritualist since 1980, he served the Illinois Moose Association as Deputy Supreme Governor in 1994-95, and as an International Moose Legion Ambassador from 1995-97. He is also a Past President of the Illinois Moose Association.

A member of the Century (100) Division of the Moose 25 Club, Neff earned the Fellowship Degree of Honor in 1985 and the Pilgrim Degree of Merit in 1995, at the young age of 37.

In December, Neff will complete 30 years of professional service to Lockport Steel Fabricators, where he has most recently served as Director of Safety, Purchasing and Information Technology.
Neff resides south of Mooseheart in Minooka, IL, with his wife Tammy and their two daughters
