A number of requests have been received regarding the provision of training for those holding certain positions within a Lodge or Chapter. To this end contact has been made with senior members of the Province to facilitate such training in the form of a seminar. It is hoped that this will not only provide each recipent with additional knowledge but will enable them to perform their duties with greater confidence.
The seminar will be held on Monday 31st March 2014 at 7.00pm at Hope St commencing in the Corinthian Room. Following a brief introduction the Provincial Grand Secretary W.Bro Peter Taylor, the Provincial Grand Treasurer W.Bro David Potts, the Regional Care Officer W.Bro Cliff Hughes will take their group of secretaries, treasurers, and almoners to designated rooms in the Hall , leaving the Provincial Grand DC W.Bro Ian Higham with the Lodge and Chapter DCs in the Corinthian room .
If any Brother wishes to raise a particular area of concern they can if they so wish send a written query in advance of the seminar to the respective speaker via the Group Secretary , this will ensure that the particular subject will not be overlooked during the presentations.
It would be helpful if you could complete the attached to confirm the names of those Brethren / Companions who will be attending the seminar, ideally your Director of Ceremonies , Secretary, Treasurer, Almoner and/or those likely to be designated to any of those positions in the near future.
Please return your replies before Monday 10th March 2014 to the Group Secretary or in the case of Royal Arch Chapters , the Group Scribe E .
