2009 California Masonic Symposium, "Applying Masonry in Contemporary Society" May 2nd

The 2009 California Masonic Symposium, "Applying Masonry in Contemporary Society," will be held May 2, 2009 at the James West Alumni Center, University of California at Los Angeles. According to the symposium's brochure, featured speakers will include:

• Henry Wilson Coil Lecturer Dr. Margaret C. Jacob, Masonic scholar and Professor of History at UCLA, whose research of Freemasonry during the Enlightenment links Masonic principles to the founding of democratic society.

• R. Stephen Doan, Past Grand Master of Masons in California, who will discuss contemporary society's major divisions, their causes and effects.

• John L. Cooper III, Past Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of California, who lends insight into which Masonic principles are necessary for a healthy democracy, and how to manage society's divisions while remaining true to Masonry's tenets of nonpartisanship and secularism.

I'm a little late in posting this, but the registration form is here.
