Important Grand Chapter Session Information

2020 Grand Chapter Annual Session

Preliminary Arrangements

Tuesday, October 27, 7:00 PM

Glen Burnie Lodge

11 South Crain Highway

Glen Burnie, Md.

The Lodge is currently set up to hold no more than 50 people, to conform with State and MWGM regulations. So, you are going to have to register to attend. Now, understanding that if all 15 current Grand Line officers go, and 2 representatives from each Chapter go, that is 47 people already, not counting PGHP’s or the MWGM or others. Also realize that we have not had that many people at a Grand session in quite a few years. So, depending on who is throwing their hat in the ring for Grand Scribe, or other offices, alot of proxy votes may be needed, or arrangements will need to change.

So, the first thing that needs to be determined is who is going to run for Grand Scribe. If you are, I must ask that you submit your name to me by NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 17. Yes, I know this is not normal and may even be stretching the rules a bit, but if we are going to try for a live session, this is the first order of business we need to clear. The Grand Secretary and Grand Treasurer to the best of my knowledge are planning to stay another year, and the Grand King and Grand Scribe will be running for the next step up.

Please bear with us while we try to accomplish this, given the current situation. This first item will determine how we go forward. And of course, restrictions may change as time progresses.

This notice will appear on the Grand Chapter Facebook page, and be mailed to all Secretaries by the Grand Secretary. It may also be mailed, if we find that is needed.

So email directly to me if you are planning on running for an elected office. I will not share this with anyone who does not have a need to know.
