A Royal Arch Grand Convocation was held on 19th March at Petersham. There were some modifications to the Regulations and the Grand Treasurer presented audited figures from June 2016. They show a modest increase in Members Funds from the previous year.
Capitation Fees will be $110.00 for the year July 2018-June 2018. This is a rise of CPI, just $2.00. A list of members will be sent to each Chapter after Easter. This will allow Scribes time to advise any corrections to membership so that the July Invoices are correct.
The USGC Mark Man Ceremonial team were presented with collarets showing their membership of this group. This team will be conducting Mark Man Ceremonies throughout the Jurisdiction. Any Mark Master, Companion or Master Mason is able to join this group. For more information please email the Mark Man Co-Ordinator, V ExComp Phil Davies on firstname.lastname@example.org.
