As a result of the input we received when we ran the Poll on the future of the Co-Masonry Board, it has been decided that firstly we should keep the board, however it was apparent that there were two things in particular that were of concern to quite a few members.
The first was that if we were to keep the Board we should change the name to accomodate all branches of Freemasonry that are different or have different criteria for membership than the 3 Largest Grand Lodges in The UK (UGLE, GLOS & GLOI) which is the area where this Board is based, and the majority of our members belong to.
Secondly, this board is for the use of all of us that want to find out more about the different types of Freemasonry there are available for prospective candidates to join or be Initiated in to. All other Masonic questions should be directed to the General or Esoteric boards.
At MFoL we are proud to be an Inclusive Board welcoming members and non members of all Masonic constitutions, if we have one member who does not feel welcome that is one member to many.
I hope you understand the reasons for not only having the Poll but also the Amenments that have followed.
Thanks again for all your opinions
There is nothing more easy than to come to the gate of truth; there is nothing more difficult than to enter it. This applies to most of the wise of this world.
jasonmark: Hello. My name is Jason. I am not yet a Freemason but am being initiated on 7th October of this year and I want to learn a little more (as far as that is permitted) about what I am joining. I hope it is ok for me to join at this point. My apologies if not.
