When are officer elections held for the chair in the East etc...? All newly raised, and brother raised prior to us have no clue to any of the inner workings of these things, and it all seems to be this great secret when we ask. I recently purchased the constitution but haven't located the voting, and election portion yet. Can someone help clarify or elaborate on this question. W.M. states that he will be taking in no new candidates until next Spring which leaves us to think no changes are in the near future as far as officers go.

 To answer your question, Here in Ohio the Officers are ask if they are interested around August and September. During the stated meeting in October the list of Officers is read to the Lodge and discussed. The stated meeting in November they are elected by vote of the Lodge. The New Officers take the new station in December.

Hope this is some help. Good Luck.

  At  the end of your Lodge year.   Elections of the top 3 Officers, Secretary, and Treasurer.   All other officers are appointed.    Per my GL code:   "The election of officers in all Subordinate Lodges
shall be by ballot, at the regular meeting of such Lodge on or next preceding the Festival of St. John the Evangelist, in each year and shall be held following the regular order of business; The installation may be held immediately, or at a later date within 30 days of election. If at a later date an open installation is held, with nonMasons present, it shall not be necessary to open the Lodge.
If such open installation is held on the same date as the election of officers, the Lodge shall be “at ease” or “at refreshment” during the time that non-Masons are in the lodge room. The Officers installed shall hold their offices until their successors are installed."

So my Lodge's elections on the regular meeting in December with installations at the 1st meeting in January.
"Until you realize that your viewpoint is incomplete and that's '_' viewpoint is complete, only then can you become teachable in the Mysteries of '_'."

That does help, but I'm greatful if we even have a monthly meeting. :) Always a reason to postpone. We had to be raised at another lodge by District Marshall and officers from District because we didnt have enough officers to attend on two occasions. Same with our 2nd degree work. Had to try twice, and still didnt have enough MM attend to do degree work. Members are not on board with the leadership, and I am starting to see why, but I am not going to stop going (WHENEVER) we do have a meeting. This month's meeting was supposed to be last Tuesday to no avail. Some of the brothers were sitting outside the lodge for an hour before contacted. Newly raised brothers of course, and they are expressing their frustrations. We will start a weekly study group next monday to get some light because we haven't had 2nd degree lectures yet nor 3rd degree anything...    Frustrated but standing firm on learning.

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.
