At the very least, aim to leave the East with your lodge in a better condition (membership, facilities and works) than when you came in.

1) Do no harm.
2) Don't let it go to your head. You're not an emperor - 365 days from now, you'll be back in the gallery.
3) Every Brother you ask for help, advice, or labor is a Brother. Treat him respectfully, and show appreciation.
4) Lead with humility.
5) Prepare the lodge for your natural succession.
6) Enjoy the time - it is a gift from the Lodge.
7) You are serving the lodge - not the other way around.

On July 18th & 19th, we (GL of Georgia) had our first Masonic Leadership Conference.  There were 105 Senior & junior Wardens present.   With my group of 12, I did just that.  ... You should have seen the 'shell shocked' faces when I asked each one
  • how much money their Lodge had in the bank;
  • what was the Lodge budget for the year;
  • what is the Lodge income.

They had no idea ... These were sitting SW & JW and would be moving into the East next year (or year after)!

We covered Lodge Finances, preparation of a budget, with Lodge income and expenses.

Membership activities, education, and fellowship events.   ... too many things to go into here.   ....

But for 2 days that was my job to show SW & JW the basics of how to plan, budget Lodge finances, and organize actives for the lodge.

RUN!!!!!
Just kidding. Seek the counsel and advice of those who came before you. Be inclusive and don't take anything personal.

Biver no longer has a day-to-day role in Hublot, but rather manages Hublot replica watches along with other LVMH watch brands from the top. For instance, it was recently announced that he replica watches would be filling in as the interim CEO of TAG Heuer - another LVMH brand. That isn't a job Jean-Claude probably rolex replica wants right now, as he has been toying with retirement for a while - but he steps up when he is rolex replica sale needed. Hublot has been doing a good job of keeping the fire alive without Jean-Claude, but with Ricardo always out and about, I can't help but wonder who rolex replica keeps the peace back at HQ. I mention the above as a semi-explanation of the fact that Hublot doesn't always have all the replica watches details settled when they announce a new replica watches uk partnership or product. The major question on the table is whether or not there will be a limited replica watches uk production "Mr. Brainwatch Edition" watch.
