An attendance award will be presented at the Grand Lodge Annual Communication to those lodges who have the Master, and 10% of their total membership, or the Master and twenty members, present. For example, if a lodge has 30 members, the Master and three members must attend. If a lodge has 200 or more members, the Master and at least 20 members must attend to qualify for this award. (If the Master is unable to attend due to extenuating circumstances, the lodge may apply to the Area Officer or the Grand Master for relief. If the Area Officer or the Grand Master determine that the absence is justifiable, the lodge will then be considered to have met the requirements with a total of 10% of their total membership in attendance.)
