BROTHER VICE PRESIDENT, RW SCOTT G HILL, DISTRICT DEPUTY GRAND MASTER INTRODUCE OUR DIGNITARIES THAT HAVE JOINED US VIRTUALLY THIS EVENING. We had the following DD and DI and other GL Officers in Attendance:
DDGM in attendance were Robert Moore, Scott G. Hill, David Bindel
DI in attendance were Darrel Hefley.
The elected and appointed officers were all present except Secretary
We had a total of 22 present via Zoom tonight.
THANK YOU, BROTHER VICE PRESIDENT, - DID HE MISS ANYONE? IF SO, PLEASE USE THE CHAT FEATURE AND WE CAN RECOGNIZE LATER.
THE PRESENTATION tonight is “What Makes a successful Lodge?” See ENCL for Power Point.
RW David Bindel led a presentation on realignment of lodges in our district. This was just a start to show that we really need to consider a realignment. It might be best for some DDGMs and DI’s to visit with David as he is in the process of preparing and submitting a resolution for next Grand Lodge session. Great Presentation RW Bindel.
Brother Ambassador shared some dates of the lodge installations. President Haven suggested using our google groups to be shared with all in 14th District.
Next Meeting will be Election and Installation of Officers on July 29, 2020. As of tonight's meeting, the only person who had made themselves available for the open officer is Seth Alston. Please contact RW Scott G. Hill if you have any interest in the elections next month.
