I'd like to become a member in the Halifax area [West Yorkshire] I know my father-in-law is a member, I have discussed with him my interest in joining - he says he will discuss my interest at lodge to see if there is a need for new members. What can I do if my father-in-law's lodge is not accepting new members? How can I find another contact to introduce me?
I would be very suprised if he can't find you a lodge in your area interested in a new member, unless of course you are a drug dealing axe murderer or the like, then it could be a bit tricky passing the fit and proper person test.......all I would advise is be patient, things don't usually move fast in freemasonru unless it is the treasurer asking for subs!
Remember the RULE of freemasonry -
Read, Understand, Learn, Enjoy
anytime! its confusing enough if you are a mason, and I remember thinking it was takng ages when I was waiting to come in nothing worthwhile comes easy!
To be honest, I suspect part of the problem that lodges currently have with retention is that they are making it too easy to come in and, as a consequence, the new member does not value what he has become a part of

The Ancient: sbs59: Were you suspended for non payment of dues? if so, square up and petition the lodge for a restatement vote. If your dues are current, your still a member. In this case, it is all about the Benjamins.
