Greetings Companions!

We are getting closer to our Triennial Assembly and things are coming together. Thank you to all of the members of the “Credentials Committee” who took on a great deal of extra tasks in order to move our meeting to a virtual environment.

We are continuing our efforts to move to a more optimized and communicative General Grand Council – on Tuesday, the Trustees agreed to “try” having a YouTube Channel for updating information available to everyone. The first video posted is an overview of the progress regarding the Triennial Assembly as it approaches. If you like this type of information being available, please “Subscribe” to the Channel!

On the website, there is a LOT of information for our Companions. In addition to the reports (which will be posted as they roll in), information on the meeting itself, information on candidates for the elective offices, and the registration, we have also included a document section ( which (at this point) includes:

1. The General Grand Council Constitution and Bylaws
2. The 46th Triennial Proceedings
3. Delegate Forms (Proxy and Designated Delegate (for Subordinate Councils) Forms.

Also coming soon – Translations of all of these documents ((Brazilian) Portuguese and Spanish are already done, just have to make them “forms”). Great work to our Companions dedicated to Translating!

If you are awaiting awards or fulfillment – some of our vendors are not working at their normal “pre-covid” capacity. PLEASE contact us and we will keep you posted as we resolve these issues.

May all of our Masonic Family stay safe and healthy!

Please let us know if there is any other information you need or programs/improvements you would like to see!
