The Honorable Order of the Blue Goose, International, is a fraternal organization which was founded over 100 years ago, for those who work in, or closely with, the insurance industry. We are a social AND charitable organization that focuses on the communities in which we live and work. Our “Ponds” are located throughout the United States and Canada and today our Order has over 4000 “Ganders.”
In 2012, leaders of the St. Louis Pond reached out to a small group of individuals in Mid-Missouri about a starting a new “Puddle.” With the help from both the St. Louis Pond and the Heart of America Pond (Kansas City), the Mid-Missouri Puddle was organized in 2013. In a single year, over 50 members were initiated into the Puddle, and at the 2014 Annual Convention in Salt Lake City, the Blue Goose of Mid-Missouri Pond was chartered.
Today, our Pond includes representatives from most of the local and national insurance companies with offices in Mid-Missouri. We also have attorneys, contractors, insurance brokers, and regulators. It is our industry that binds us all together, but it is our acts for the betterment of the community that represent the Honorable Order of the Blue Goose.
The coming year is going to be exciting and we encourage those interested to join us. Please explore our website, attend one of our upcoming events, and/or reach out to me one of our Pond Officers for more information.
