Companions and Sir Knights

The Northeast Regional Conference will be live and in-person this year, on September 10 and 11th at the Crowne Plaza Albany Desmond Hotel. We invite all the current and future leaders of the York Rite to attend this conference and the classes of the Emerging Leaders Program.

The flyer has the details for room and meal reservations. The Crown Plaza Albany is the same hotel where we met in 2018 and 2019 – last year’s sessions were on Zoom. The regional conference is a great place to exchange ideas about programs that worked (or didn’t) and to meet your counterparts of the Northeast. This is the personal interaction that online sessions lack!

You must enroll for the Emerging Leaders Program separately; their contact information is also in the flyer. The current York Rite Leadership Training Program consists of three well-developed classes that are designed to give you the skills to be a better leader of yourself and others. Details about the different levels of the Program are on the next page, as well as on their website:


We must remind the Sir Knights that, per Section 114 1/82 (b) of Templar Law, the Grand Commander, Deputy Grand Commander, Grand Generalissimo, Grand Captain General, and the Grand Recorder are expected to attend, and only the M.E. Grand Master may excuse you.
