FG All,

The Brother who has been appointed is emminantely qualified for such a role through both his Public and Masonic life, and I am reliably informed a thoroughly decent and likeable individual.

I think the discussion this leads to however is the direction in which UGLE has chosen for the modernistaion of its infrastructure, and even if one thinks modernisation is necessary (I do).

The interesting thing for me is that the present push by UGLE to modernise, in some part precipitated by falling numbers, is being discussed by ordinary Masons.

I would imagine there must be some trepadation at GQS that the present reformist ideology may paradoxically wake a slumbering membership; and while an infrastructure is obviously needed to handle the administration of the Craft, will it cause them to scrutinise how UGLE performs as a corparate body........ a bold step.

Interesting point Jon, but such discussions have happened here since Mike began this service.

There were similar grass-roots discussions in the 1990s about the need for additional factors to be considered in UGLE's recognition of the Prince Hall GLs.

UGLE's first ever website was eventually sponsored by a Ruler, but the initial discussions and development were very much at the grass-roots.

There's still some work to be done and I hope to see more similar ventures.

That is true in the Forum , which of course draws its membership from those who are more active and cosmopolitan generally.

However, after 25 years in the Craft, personally I am hearing more grass roots discussion in Lodges and out than before.

(Still can't turn the italics off though!)
