Around the District

Saturday, May 14th, 2022 – Wardens and Deacons Workshop.  The 21st District Education Officers are providing for your education in 2022. This workshop is highly recommended for preparing for your time in the East. Coffee and doughnuts will be supplied. Dress is business casual. We are asking for a $5 donation to go to the hosting Lodge for the use of their facility.

This year’s training session will be held at the North Canton Masonic Temple located at 805 Orchard Ave NE North Canton Oh 44720.

Registration will begin at 8am with the training session beginning promptly at 9am and we hope to conclude by 12pm. This year’s session will be offered as a hybrid event for our Brethren who still feel uncomfortable with attending in-person, so I will be sending out the Zoom link for those who wish to attend virtually 1 week prior to the event. 

The programs for this year’s session are as follows:

  1. Protocols
  2. Internet and Social Media Etiquette
  3. How to run Effective and Productive Officers Meetings
  4. Preparing for Your Year in the East
  5. Open Book Ritual

Per the Grand Masters Edict (2022-2) regarding no ritual on virtual meetings, those who attend in that manner will not be able to view the Open Book portion of the training.  We are asking that you register no later than Friday, May 6th 2022. Please send your RSVP to mrozzy1288@yahoo.com with your name, lodge (name and number), office held and if you will be attending virtually or in-person.

GrandView Membership Portal

In previous bulletins, we showed you how to gain access to the Grand Lodge of Ohio Membership portal; which is called GrandView.  Here are a few more items within the portal that will help you navigate.

When you login into Grand Lodge Masonic Membership Manager (grandview.systems), you will be presented with the dashboard referenced above.  You can select items such as an events page, Grand Lodge information, a Resource page, My Profile and also find other lodges.  For this lesson, we are using the ‘Feed’ selection.
  Once you click on ‘Feed’, you are presented with communications from your Lodge, your District Lodge Officer’s as well as The Grand Lodge of Ohio information.  Other Districts will also post in this area.   They may also contain links to specific forms or flyers for events, such as the Golf Outings and Awards Night.   These are just a few examples.
