'Not Just a Man. A Mason.'

The Scottish Rite Northern Masonic Jurisdiction continues to officially roll out their new programs and strategies. At the Conference of Grand Masters this week, the Supreme Council's Linda Patch gave a presentation that was a gift to the entire fraternity: a whole new branded advertising and media campaign about Freemasonry that can be used as is, or tailored especially to suit a specific grand lodge. The campaign is designed to educate the public, and to inspire Masonic brethren about who we are and what we stand for as Freemasons.

Just to clarify: this is NOT a Scottish Rite campaign, but a generic Masonic one.

The campaign is centered on the headline, "Not Just A Man. A Mason," and consists of a pre-produced broadcast-ready commercial; large sized and retractable banners; graphics for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more. There's even a generic square and compass logo with the tag line:

All of this marketing material is being provided free of charge to individual lodges and grand lodges. Further, the commercial and the print and online material can be customized by the Supreme Council to localize them, or to brand them for the grand lodge. Forms for ordering customization appear on the website.

See how the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin is already making use of these elements right now on their website HERE.

PLEASE NOTE: The images, material, and trademark are the property of the Supreme Council, AASR, NMJ, USA. The Supreme Council is sharing this material with the Masonic family for their advertising and promotional programs, as long as we adhere to the rules in the BRAND GUIDELINE document provided on the website HERE. These include color and sizing changes, headline fonts, and other details. They may NOT be modified by anyone but the Supreme Council, which is a modest enough requirement to get this kind of complete campaign for no charge in return. Please do NOT go off on your own and make ANY changes to these images that are not approved by their rightful owner and creators.

  1. The students today marching on state houses are showing they believe in something more than themselves. The grand masters need to consider not marketing, but marketing about lodges relevant to the concerns of the young that they hope will be attracted: the environment, the dreamers, the cost of education, acceptance of gays and African-Americans. This is not politics but harmony with the generation we would like to attract. An example is that instead of trying to sell Marlbo Man and John Wayne, we need to make dramatic program changes, including a well promoted choice between male and co-ed lodges and the very aggressive donation of our facilities to community activities. The third degree is a radical statement about rebirth and renewal.


Comments will not appear immediately, so be patient. I am forced to laboriously screen every post because I am constantly bombarded with spam. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned. If you post with an unknown or anonymous account, do not expect to see your comment appear.
