Greeting from “YOUR” Committee on Work Team!
I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who can out to the Fall Reunion Degree Masters Meeting, which we held on 8.10.2019. In my last article, I mentioned some exciting changes coming to the Committee on Work, Degree Masters, and Degree Participants.
After reviewing the Degree Masters Surveys over the last several reunions, there was a conscientious of two things: 1. Need for more practices, and 2. More brothers wanting the memorize parts. Since taking the reins, I have had several conversations with Ill. Chet and Ill. Keith to discuss changes we believe will inspire, motivate, and reward degree participants. The first thing we did was move the Degree Masters Meeting from one month before reunions to two months before. This change would allow degree teams to have more time for scheduling practices.
Additionally, to motivate degree participants, we will now be rewarding degree members 75 Double Eagle points for attending practices. These points will be awarded by the Degree Masters sending an email to Ill. Keith and myself with the date and participant list. To reward those brothers who take the time to memorize their parts will be awarding 100 Double Eagle points for each degree cast members perform from memory.
One thing I wanted to make sure to communicate is that the Committee on Work is here to facilitate, orchestrate, and most importantly, FOSTER BROTHERHOOD. Because without this sense of Brotherhood, there is no way our brethren will continue to do the great work they do. So if you have any suggestions on how we can improve, please do not hesitate to reach out and talk to us.
I wanted to thank you all for being part of the TEAM. I know that by working together, we can continue with the legacy placed before us, and with our hard work, we can ensure continued growth and improvement of our reunions into the future.
In closing, thank you for all you have done, are doing, and will do for our fraternity.
