Virtual Business Meeting of Provincial Grand Lodge of Essex
You are, of course, all aware that our Annual Meeting of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons was cancelled owing to the General Suspension. All those who would have been appointed or promoted in provincial rank are, of course, entitled to use that rank but that leaves the Province with some administrative business to conduct. beyond that, the Provincial Grand Master is keen to connect with as many Essex mark men as possible. With the current restriction on meetings having no more than thirty persons present and no dining allowed, it is the PGM's intention to hold a Virtual Business Meetings to complete that Provincial Business. That meeting will be held on Thursday, 20th August at 7pm and will be conducted via the Zoom platform.
This meeting give us the opportunity to complete those items but it will also give the PGM, his Executive and all those attending a first opportunity to congratulate those who assumed their new Ranks and Offices in May.
The Assistant Grand Master, R.W. Bro. Steve Davison, and the Grand Secretary, R.W. Bro. Ryan Williams will be joining us and have agreed to take part in a question and answer session. Our Annual Meeting is always an important milestone in our Masonic calendar and it would be great if the Assistant Grand Master saw as many of our Members as possible attending our first Virtual Provincial Business Meeting, remembering this meeting is open to all. Please make the effort to "attend" the meeting it would be nice to see every Mark and RAM Lodge represented.
You are reminded that Dress is White Collar & Provincial Tie, and that there is to be No alcohol present or consumed immediately before, during or after the meeting as laid down in the guidelines from Grand Lodge.
