The annual MRF Symposium is a meeting place for Masons who are seeking the highest form of Masonic experience they can attain within their lodges, while strictly conforming to the laws, resolutions, and edicts of their respective grand lodges. It is a gathering for those who pursue quality in the Craft to share ideas and discuss their work.
The Symposium will take place from August 10-12, 2018, and will be hosted by Montezuma Lodge No. 1 and Cerrillos Lodge No. 19, with part of the event taking place at the adjacent Santa Fe Scottish Rite Temple. As usual, the event will begin with a Festive Board Harmony held in the Dining Hall on Friday evening, conducted by the host lodge, and featuring comments from Keynote Speaker, Worshipful Brother John Bizzack, Master of Lexington Lodge No. 1, in Lexington, Kentucky, and author of Island Freemasonry.
Other speakers on the program include: Oscar Alleyne, Douglas L. Caudle, Bo Cline, Patrick Craddock, Robert G. Davis, Andrew Hammer, Scott Jaquith, Thomas Pierce, Dago Rodriguez, John Tolbert, and MW Adam Hathaway, the Grand Master of New Mexico.
Additionally, brethren will have the opportunity to attend a New Mexico Master Mason degree on Saturday afternoon. Registration for the complete Symposium is $125.00; $75.00 for the Saturday session only. Brothers who wish to attend only the Friday night Harmony will pay $50.
Any Mason in good standing may register for the Symposium, provided he is a member of a Grand Lodge which is a member of, or is recognized by any one of the Grand Lodges which are members of the Conference of Grand Masters of North America, or the United Grand Lodge of England, the Grand Lodge of Ireland, or the Grand Lodge of Scotland.
