CMMRF Trustee Nominations
Submitted by RPC Monty Glover, DGGM, President Board of Trustees, CMMRF

Monty Glover
Deputy General Grand Master
Cryptic Masons International


Greetings Companions,

Below you will find an announcement concerning a call for companions who desire to stand for election for a seat on the Board of Trustees of the Cryptic Mason Medical Research Foundation or CMMRF, as an At-Large Board Member. The information provided below is pretty clear cut. However, I would like to point out a few things.

This Board is a working Board. Our primary job is promoting the efforts of the CMMRF, educating our Companions and the public about the incredible research our Masonic Charity makes possible and continuously look for ways to raise donations to fund that research.

This position is one representing all of the Companions of the Cryptic Rite. Therefore, you must be willing to set aside your local Jurisdictional focus and to assume a focus on a much larger picture. That is not to say you must or should give up any local efforts you may be working on in your Jurisdiction. Please don\’t, but rather understand that when working with the CMMRF Board of Trustees, you must stretch your vision and ideas to encompass a much larger base.

If the Labor, worked in this Quarry, speaks to your heart, I encourage you to submit your intent to stand for election to the CMMRF Board of Trustees.

We are seeking these announcements in order to give our voting membership an opportunity to see who is seeking these positions well in advance of the Triennial session. Hopefully, the voting members will get to know you a bit by this means so they may make an informed decision.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me at and I will do my best to answer them.

Fraternally yours,

Monty J. Glover, DGGM
President of the Board of Trustees
Cryptic Masons Medical Research Foundation
