Gather with Masonic Leaders to Learn, Grow, and Share Insights

What is it that successful lodges do to stand apart? Learn the game-changing techniques and expert advice from Masonic leaders from around the state to transform your home lodge at the 2020 Master and Wardens Retreats. Filled with high-level networking and leadership panels, the Master and Wardens retreats are designed to bring a renewed sense of inspiration and cooperation to your officer line, as each officer learns how to fulfill his role to his best ability. For the greatest benefit, attend with your fellow officers to create a collaborative multi-year strategy.

Inspirational. Impactful. Visionary.

You joined the officer line to make a difference, and this retreat is designed to help you do just that. Embrace time-tested management skills, get ideas for invigorating your lodge, and create an action plan to accomplish the changes you envision. Catch up with old friends, make new connections, and get the in-person guidance you need from Grand Lodge staff. Hear from and talk with lodge leaders in leadership panels, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities. Share your experiences, and build on the success of others as we strengthen Freemasonry in California.

A Formula for Success

By the time officers leave, they’ll have actionable, practical takeaways they can put in place right away—and partners and mentors at sister lodges they can learn on for support. Past attendees have noted how energized and inspired they are after attending a retreat. Plug into this special opportunity to activate your line’s leadership potential.

Bring Your Partner or Spouse

Your loved one is encouraged to join you for a weekend filled with fellowship in a scenic setting. With two meetings each in Northern and Southern California, the retreats are fun, useful, and convenient.
