Ken Davis, President of The Masonic Society, unveils the initiatives TMS undertakes this year in the name of Masonic education. If you are a regular Freemason who is interested in learning more about the Craft, membership in TMS is for you. Click here.
I’m happy to announce three important TMS programs for this year:
First, is an Annual Conference of The Masonic Society, taking place October 7 through 9 at Morgan Hill Masonic Lodge in Morgan Hill, California (just twenty minutes from San Jose International Airport). The theme of the conference will be “Freemasonry on the Frontier,” on the role of Masonry in the westward expansion of the United States and Canada.
The conference will begin Friday evening with an informal dinner, and will end with lunch on Sunday.
Details on the conference, with a call for presentations, will appear in the Spring 2016 issue of The Journal of the Masonic Society. To receive advance information when it’s available, please e-mail us and ask to be put on the Conference e-mail list.
The second new program is The Masonic Society School, a program of non-credit online Masonic “courses,” study groups, and reading groups, as well as possible tours and other experiences, exclusively for TMS members. We expect to launch the first offerings at the October conference.
Details on the school also will appear in the Spring 2016 issue of The Journal of the Masonic Society. To receive advance information when it’s ready, e-mail us and ask to be put on the School e-mail list.
The third new program is The Masonic Society Scholar, an annual award to a Masonic researcher/educator. During the year of the award, the recipient will make himself available to speak at a number of lodges of research and other Masonic bodies throughout the world (with travel expenses paid by the local host organization).
The first TMS Scholar will be announced at the Annual Conference this October.
Details on the program, with a call for nominations, too will appear in the Spring 2016 issue of The Journal of the Masonic Society. For advance information, e-mail us and ask to be put on the Scholar e-mail list.
