Who or What Is

The Grand Lodge?

Best way to answer that is to look at the three (3) Branches of the Grand Lodge and where and to whom the Powers of Governance are vested

Powers of Governance

Legislative: Vested in Grand Lodge

Its PGERs

Its Officers, Members of Committees, & DDGERs

All PERs in good standing in their respective Lodges

ER or PER Representative of Subordinate Lodges

Executive: Vested in the Grand Exalted Ruler

Recap

1. We exist through the Charter granted by Grand Lodge. Lose your charter and you no longer exist. Your duty as officers is to protect your Charter .

2. Should your Charter be yanked it would be done by the Grand Exalted Ruler through an Executive Order and by the hand of his Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler in your District (the District Deputy or DDGER).

3. The above will only happen if it is requested by the PGER State Co-sponsors Grafton, Bates, & Smith.

4. You and your members can write all the complaint letters you want to the Grand Exalted Ruler (GER) and the Grand Secretary. However, please understand this:

  • If not signed they will be disposed of without even reading!

  • The GER will probably never read your letters as all his mail goes to his Administrative Assistant who immediately redirects the letters to the respective State Sponsor(s).
