Region 12 Masonic Education


JOB DESCRIPTIONS

Leadership is the ability to make decisions now while allowing enough flexibility to change and enough stability to make your decisions effective. The United Grand Lodge of NSW & ACT has recently defined the roles and responsibilities of the Regional, District and Lodge Education Officers.

The Region 12 Masonic Education Taskforce is looking for Freemasons who want to play an important role in our society, men who are prepared to deal not only with the known, but to understand and create new solutions to ever-changing problems in a world where the dynamics of every situation are ever-increasing in intensity and diversity. Freemasons of today survive in an environment where the availability of knowledge is increasing so rapidly that yesterday’s solutions simply do not apply.
