The Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master, Steven Varley, has been pleased to appoint W Bro. Richard Johnson, ProvDGDC, to the newly created office of Provincial Membership Officer.
Richard’s role will be to create a Provincial membership development plan and assist Lodges in preparing their own plans which will result in them introducing suitable men to the Craft and to their Lodge.
Richard is working with UGLE on a pilot study for the Members’ Pathway. The Pathway is a structured framework, being developed by the Membership Focus Group, to take an interested non-Mason through all the steps to become a committed Master Mason. It will comprise, when finished, a set of guidelines, tools and techniques that Lodges can use to assist them.
Derbyshire has a leading role in the work and Lodge Secretaries have been asked to assist by notifying the Provincial Grand Secretary if they have likely applicants due for interview within the next year.
