Secrets of the Chair Program
There is no greater call to duty a brother can answer than accepting the mantle of governance of his lodge. Upon the good recommendations of his brethren and election to the office, the brother accepts his role and sits in the East, governing his lodge with fairness, decorum, and direction. For some brothers, it is their first opportunity to sit in the oriental chair, lead the craft, and be an inspiration for all. For others, the occasion may be a familiar role that they are once again called to perform, yet they do so with a cheerful manner and promise to renew their dedication.
The Secrets of the Chair presentation is designed to be given to a Royal Arch Companion who is recently installed or fairly new in the office of Worshipful Master of his lodge. It is intended to highlight and promote the indelible tie between Craft Masonry and the Royal Arch, serve as a reminder to all that our Companions are still devoted Brothers, and to thank the Worshipful Master for his ongoing service and leadership to his lodge.
