Pre-Term Timeline

The Senior Warden, in anticipation of being selected Master-Elect, should follow the time line, starting in January of the year he expects to sit in the East.  The timeline reflects three paths: budgeting, plan strategy, and installation planning.  The Master’s Trestle Board series of documents provides step-by-step guidance for all three paths. These documents are available in the Master’s Trestle Board Archives under the “Trestle Board” menu.

PLEASE NOTE: In Massachusetts, Senior Wardens or any Mason planning to serve as Master of his lodge must attend Master’s Path as required by The Grand Lodge of Masons in Massachusetts.  Please refer to guidelines from Grand Lodge and govern yourself accordingly.
