Quarry Project Early Bird Registration

The Masonic Society and the Masonic Library and Museum Association have joined forces to establish The Quarry Project. Phase one of this endeavor will be the Conference on Masonic Research and Preservation to be held in the George Washington Masonic Memorial in Alexandria, VA on September 27–29, 2013. The conference is open to anyone interested in Masonic research and preservation, but will be specifically targeted toward members of Masonic lodges of research as well as authors, writers, and researchers, both published and aspiring, as well as Masonic librarians and museum curators.

The conference will draw from both the Masonic and academic communities to provide detailed instruction on Masonic research and the editing of the results. In addition, the recommendations of a committee created to establish a set of voluntary standards for future Masonic research, writing, and editing will be introduced. Professional librarians, museum curators, and experts on display and preservation will provide practical instruction and advice on maintaining and improving Masonic historical repositories. Multiple concurrent presentations will be offered on all three days. A few success stories that will enthuse and inspire you will be mixed in along the way.

The Quarry Project “Early Bird” registration ends on May 1, 2013. If you are planning on attending this event, you can save some money by registering before then. Go the http://www.thequarryproject.com/registration/ to register today. Also, if you are planning on staying at the conference hotel (Hilton Alexandria Old Town), it would be helpful to register as soon as possible, before our block of rooms is depleted.
