Do you feel like you have a good Masonic message to deliver in lodge?

Have you put some Masonic musings together, but aren’t sure what to do with them? Would you like to share the story of your Masonic journey with others?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, there may be an opportunity for you.

The Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania is proud to announce that we will be holding auditions for inclusion in the Speakers Bureau. If you have a talk of up to 20 minutes that is interesting, fun, entertaining and Masonic in nature, please consider registering for a spot at the audition location that is right for you (see right for details).

If you aren’t quite ready to make a presentation, you are welcome to attend. All Master Masons are invited, but Wardens and prospective Masters are encouraged to come out and identify speakers who might be good for their lodge programs.

The morning will begin with coffee and donuts at 8:30 a.m. Presentations will begin at 9 a.m. Lunch will be served following the final presentation. Pre-registration is required for speakers and for attendees so we can get an accurate lunch count. Each location is limited to five speakers and will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Speakers will be given no more than 20 minutes to make their presentation, and 10 minutes will be allotted for questions and answers. Speakers will be evaluated by the attendees to determine whether they will be added to the Speakers Bureau.

Please contact the representative for your area to register:
