Lodge Structure and Organization
How A Lodge Works
Lodge Administration begins with the Worshipful Master.
He is the "Man with the Hat". Each and every facet of the lodge is his responsibility during his year as Master.
Each officer of the lodge has specific duties.
While different jurisdictions differ, somewhat, ...(remember, this website
attempts to take into consideration all jurisdictions all over the
world)...which is not always easy...the fact remains that basic Lodge structure and organization is somewhat static (similar).
Please note: If any of the following information is counter to your specific Grand Lodge By-Laws or Lodge By-Laws, please omit that portion.
Lodge administration begins with you. If you are or will become the Worshipful
Master; to make tenure in office flow as smoothly as possible, I would suggest
reading each of the links, below.
Most of you will be requested / assigned / delegated to Lodge Committees by the Worshipful Master. I suggest that each of you read both Lodge Officer Duties and Lodge Committee Duties, at a minimum, to assist you in the performance of your tasks.
Masonic education can be a lengthy task. Feel free to choose to read these pages,
print them and discuss them with your new members, or simply give them the URL
(address) of this website and then ask questions to test them over their reading.
I am hopeful that this website will be able to assist you in providing
Masonic Education to make your job of training the brethren much easier.
Another excellent way to begin their training is to
print copies of the Masonic Etiquette page and hand these to the newly
Entered Apprentice directly after his EA degree has been completed.
Secretary: At a
minimum, if you are a new Secretary, I would suggest you read the Lodge Member Count page.
It is my hope that this Lodge Administration page is
helpful to each and every member of the brethren (within the boundaries of your own, personal jurisdictional By-Laws).
