New Masonic Renewal Committee Website
If you haven't visited the Masonic Renewal Committee web page lately, it has been completely redesigned. You'll find a wide variety of resources for new and established lodges.
The Masonic Renewal Committee is sanctioned by the Conference of Grand Masters of North America, and has recently been charged with assembling Masonic education resources from around North America into one easy to access resource. This will eventually go a long way towards keeping grand lodges from reinventing the wheel. Great work has been done by grand lodge education committees, only to be buried in obscure or defunct websites. The MRC is seeking to put the best ones online where all Masons can access them. Subjects include mentoring, leadership, membership retention, communication, community projects and charities, secretarial issues, and more. There are Powerpoint presentations, a calendar of all grand lodge communication dates, and even a password protected area for grand masters to discuss issues.
With active participation from grand lodges, this promises to be a tremendous resource.
