Masonic Family Leadership Conference
January, 25, 2020
Portsmouth Masonic Temple
Open to ALL MEMBERS of our Masonic Family!
Sponsored by New Hampshire Order of the Eastern Star with additional support from the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire, New Hampshire Rainbow, New Hampshire DeMolay, and New Hampshire Consistory, and Bektash Shriners.
Tickets are $25 per person and open to members of all of the Masonic Family of organizations.
This event is intended to provide a day of inspiring content to encourage and empower members and officers of the entire Masonic family of bodies. Our organizations share many of the same challenges and goals. This is a unique opportunity to be united to learn about and assist each other. If we work together, we can succeed together!
This program has several very specific goals:
1 . To better understand generational differences and provide information and concepts to more effectively lead and communicate with each other.
Large generational gaps exist within all of our organizations, whether it be within Demolay and Rainbow (youth vs advisors), Eastern Star, or Masonry, as well as across our bodies. Learning about how each of the generations think and how we can best speak to each other will help us all grow!
2. To enhance our conflict resolution skills to be better enabled to unite in promoting the goals of our organizations.
In obtaining additional tools to resolve potential strife among our members, we retain more members and maintain our strength. How many times have we lost members or had disruptions in the leadership of our bodies due to simple misunderstandings? The promotion of empathy and understanding among people are key aspects of our organizations and of these programs.
3. To learn to better utilize technological tools to improve communication both internally between organizations and externally to the public.
We often take for granted that not everyone communicates via the same methods or connects with the same types of messages. We can all benefit by obtaining the knowledge and skills to better communicate the value and importance of our programs.
4. To help us break out of the “it’s always been done that way” mindset by establishing positive, growth-oriented practices and principals.
If we want to strengthen and grow, we must listen to each other and be open to new ideas. As steeped in tradition as we are, overcoming the “fixed mindset” can be a significant challenge. This program will offer solutions for us to think positively, and move forward united as a team.
