OSIA has hundreds of lodges (chapters) located nationwide. Lodges meet regularly for social and community-oriented activities. Dues vary according to the individual lodges.

Locating a Lodge

Italian America® magazine.

Starting a Lodge

Starting a Sons of Italy® lodge is easy with some dedication and a little free time.

Once you have a minimum of 25 people interested in becoming members and a place to hold your first meeting, contact the Grand Lodge in your state (use the interactive map below for contact information). You will receive a lodge start-up kit with all the materials you need along with step-by-step instructions to help you get started at your first meeting. Schedule your meeting to allow 4-6 weeks for delivery of the kit.

If there is no Grand Lodge in your state, contact the OSIA National Headquarters at 202.547.2900 or email Andrea Beach.

Before you know it, you will be a founding member of a new and exciting lodge in the oldest and largest national organization for Italian American men and women! Buona Fortuna!
