2020 Masons Workshop Conference 2011

DUBBO, New South Wales

The 2020 program is forging ahead with its goals of becoming a long lasting and viable program to both promote and enhance Freemasonry within this jurisdiction. For many the 2020 program was seen to be a blip on the calendar of Freemasonry programs, and for some time this may have been the case, but no longer is this the norm.

With the newly established Advisory Board, placement of the Regional Coordinators and membership on the Grand Lodge Committees the 2020 program is kicking goals and we now have the ear of the Grand Lodge Executive. As a 2020 management group we have commenced the process of evaluating our Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats to identify the grass roots problems facing the fraternity at present and we now need to call on all interested Brethren, not to tarnish the program but to add value, have a say and provide input to the program going forward.

Unlike the Bankstown Conference which launched the program this conference is of a workshop design to discuss the current and ongoing establishment of the program, identify where our limited resources are best focused and by setting realistic goals and objectives in each of the key areas of the program.

As 2020 Masons or Brethren interested in becoming 2020 Brethren or providing valuable inputs without ridicule or sarcasm we encourage you to attend the conference and continue the drive and development of the program now and into the future.
