What if I don’t know someone in my local lodge?
When a potential member does not know anyone in the local lodge, the lodge will arrange a casual meeting with several members who will be glad to share information about their lodge and its activities. This kind of “meet and greet” provides an opportunity for everyone to get to know each other, to ask and answer questions, and to see if there is a good fit between the man and the lodge.
Each lodge decides who may become a member, consistent with our customs, rules, and regulations. Some lodges will invite potential members to several activities or social functions before two members agree to make the recommendation.
