Thank you for your interest in Ohio Freemasonry

As part of the petition process, all applicants for membership in Ohio Freemasonry will be asked to obtain a background check prior to petitioning the Lodge. The process helps the Lodge maintain the historic standard that all candidates be “of good report and well recommended”. Applicants who are already sponsored by a Mason are not required to perform a background check.

If you are interested in learning more about the application process, visit our How to Join page for more information on how to become an Ohio Mason.

All background checks are performed by InfoCheckUSA. Once performed, the report will be sent directly to you. Please be aware that no one from the Lodge will have access to the report unless you allow them to see it. If you decide not to proceed with a petition, you do not have to share the report.
