Book Description

18 Mar 2010
The well-being of a Lodge largely depends upon its Secretary. He has a unique position in it, with multidimensional reflections. The Secretary undertakes almost continuous year-long responsibility amidst his numerous livelihood chores. In the past, many Secretaries used to be permanent officers of the Lodges, with the benefits that an experienced Secretary would manage the affairs of the Lodge smoothly, but current thinking is that no one should serve for more than two years so that junior members can involve themselves in Lodge affairs. The newcomers to this office often lack experience and this book is written with this background in mind: to provide guidance on the one hand and to help introduce modern management tools on the other. Each major topic which needs some action on the part of the Secretary is given a chapter. Checklists of activities relevant to each chapter are appended at the end of the chapter with cells against each activity to mark the date on which the activity is completed. The general principles in this practical guide hold good for the side degrees as well, with only minor and contextual modifications.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough Overview of this important Lodge Office 16 Aug 2012
By Enrique J. Perez - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
While often containing procedures not often followed in some local jurisdictions, this little booklet provides a good thorough guide of most duties a Secretary whether of a Lodge or Grand Lodge may be called upon to perform. I highly recommend this book to anyone just staring out in this respected Lodge position or for those seasoned Secretaries who wish to review duties not necessarily part of their jurisdiction who are considering updating the Administrative functions of their Office.
