Grand Lodge Monitor Exams
February 1 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm CST
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until February 1, 2020
W. B. Ted Martz, Chairman of the Board of Custodians, has announced that the annual Monitor examinations will be held on January 31, 2020, and the re- examinations on February 1. Both will take place at the Masonic Heritage Center in Bloomington. The lodge doors will open at 8:30 a.m. on both days; coffee at 8:00. Monitors wishing to take part in the re-examination or those wishing to be recertified are asked to contact the Grand Lodge office, by phone at 952-948-6700 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any Master Mason is also invited to be a sideliner during the examination so that he may become familiar with the process of being certified as a Monitor. The requirements to become a Monitor are quite simple. The Brother need not have served as Master of his Lodge. However, to be certified for the first time, he should bring a letter from his Lodge certifying that, in the Lodge’s opinion, the Brother is proficient in the work of the degree on which he wishes to be certified. He must also be familiar with the manual of the rod, balloting and the examination of visitors; as laid out in the Minnesota Masonic Code, Section G18.17-G18.20.
Please be sure to RSVP if you plan to attend.
