Member Resources

As a member of Elgin Lodge, you are entitled to attend all Lodge meetings and vote on motions which come before the Lodge. Only Master Masons who have signed our bylaws are considered members of the Lodge.

Much information is provided via our email list. We also have a Facebook Page. You can find a link to them here.

Meeting Schedules:

Our Stated meetings are generally held on the 2nd Monday of each month, with some exceptions for certain holidays. Stated meetings are like general business meetings and include discussion about Lodge activities and votes on motions regarding various matters.

We reserve the 4th Monday of each month for Special meetings, where we do work or practice ritual or take care of other business which has been announced in advance.

Lodge Officers:

The leader of the lodge is the Worshipful Master, who along with the Senior Warden and the Junior Warden makes up the three principal officers of the Lodge. We elect the three principal officers as well as the Treasurer and Secretary. Other appointed Lodge officers include the Senior Deacon, Junior Deacon, Senior Steward, Junior Steward, Marshal, Chaplain and Tyler.

Dress Code:

The Lodge does not have a formal dress code, but officers are encouraged to wear a suit and tie, and members should follow suit as circumstances allow. Business casual dress is sometimes appropriate. We generally discourage jeans and sneakers. However, we'd rather have you attend than not if you wouldn't have time to get home to change before the meeting.
