Purpose and Membership

Section 15 of the Luxembourg Brotherhood of America is based in the North and Northwest suburbs of Chicago. We are part of the Grand Lodge which offers membership to all persons both those of Luxembourger heritage and those interested in all things Luxembourgish.  We celebrate our Luxembourg heritage and are closely aligned with the Luxembourg American Cultural Society in Belgium, WI.

Our current officers are listed on the Section Officers page. Please click the blue box at the top of the right-hand column.

Our annual installation of officers dinner is held in Janaury.  Other meetings of the year occur on the second Wednesday of the month in the months of April, July, and October.  Our events are sponsored for the comaraderie of members, families, friends and all who are interested in the Luxembourg traditions.

The Luxembourg Brotherhood of America is the oldest Luxembourg-American organization in existence in the United States. It was founded in 1887 as a fraternal insurance organization on Chicago’s south side. Although the LBA no longer offers insurance to its members, today it consists of four sections located in the Chicago area and is dedicated to maintaining the strong ties between the Grand Duchy and its American relatives.
