Our Grand Secretary, RWB Dale Bryan, has found it necessary to step down as Grand Secretary. A copy of his letter to me is attached. RWB Dale has agreed to stay on until his successor is named and Assistant Grand Secretary RWB Keith Neese will be helping to cover things in the office while RWB Dale relocates back to St. Joseph to be closer to his family and a new Grand Secretary is selected. The Craft should notice no disruption of service in the day to day operations of the Grand Lodge office.
I am currently in Wisconsin at the Conference of Grand Masters of North America but I am in the process of appointing a special committee pursuant to Section 2.010(l) of the By-Laws to search for and recommend a qualified successor.
We have retained the resumes of all those who applied for the position last spring so those of you who submitted a resume at that time need not resubmit in order to be considered.
For those who wish to be considered but did not submit a resume before, please send your resume and cover letter explaining why you believe you are qualified for the position ON OR BEFORE MARCH 4 to RWB Keith Neese at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I plan on moving things along as quickly as possible.
Please join me in thanking RWB Dale for his service to the Craft and in wishing him and his family all the best.
