Provincial Masonic Centres Officer

To secure the future of Freemasonry one objective of UGLE’s 2015-2020 Our Strategy at a Glance is to ensure that facilities and standards of Masonic centres meet the needs of ‘modern man’.


To deliver that objective UGLE have prepared the guide “Masonic Halls – Centres of Excellence”, which provides a source of much advice and guidance to Masonic Hall Management bodies. UGLE envisage that each Province will have at least one officer who will assist with the launch of the document in the Province, and who will thereafter act as a link between the Province and the various Masonic Hall Management bodies, and who will assist each of those bodies in securing advice and guidance in achieving the object of being a Centre of Excellence.


The Provincial Grand Master invites expressions of interest in filling this office from experienced brethren who have appropriate buildings management knowledge.


The office description and specification is below. The UGLE guide is also attached, or is available from, or can be downloaded below


The closing date for expressions of interest is 16th March 2018. These should be emailed to the Provincial Grand Secretary, James Ross at
