About the Workshops

Once again, Lt. Grand Commander Jim Cole, 33°, will lead the workshops, which are open to ALL Scottish Rite members. At each meeting, we will seek to build on our previous achievements from 2014 by reassembling the Craft in order to evaluate, share stories of success, and seek consensus on improving the Valley Membership Achievement Project (VMAP) going forward for Valleys of all sizes and participation levels.

These workshops only are effective when we have YOUR input. We developed VMAP from over 400 suggestions and ideas we collected from our members in 2014. This year, we need your experiences and energy EVEN MORE to ensure this program continues to improve the membership experience for ALL of our Scottish Rite Brothers.

The 2016 Scottish Rite Workshops are open to ALL members of the Scottish Rite and are located within a few hours’ travel distance from most areas of our jurisdiction. Pick the most convenient workshop for you, or come to them all! 

We’ll see you there!
