Five Year Strategic Plan for Grand Lodge

The Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) of the Board of General Purposes has launched a strategic planning process that will consult and engage the Masonic fraternity throughout the province to develop a Five Year Strategic Planfor the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia. The Plan is intended to assist Grand Lodge with guiding its direction and decision making (link for background information).

Workshops / consultations are planned later this year in each district of the province to have discussion and solicit input into the strategic direction and priorities of Grand Lodge. Information on dates and locations of these workshops will be confirmed and communicated in September. We welcome and encourage all members of the Masonic fraternity to participate in this process as it is your opportunity to have a voice in the development of a Five Year Strategic Plan for Grand Lodge.
