Nevada Masonic Leadership Conference

The Grand Lodge, F&AM of Nevada, presented in 2013 a "Nevada Masonic Leadership Conference" in both Reno and Las Vegas, which was well attended and well received.
Based on that success, in 2014 we updated, expanded, and enlarged the Conference from two days to three, and presented it in both Reno and Las Vegas.
The conference for 2015 will be held in both Reno and Las Vegas - in Las Vegas on February 20/12/22 and in Reno on March 27/28/29. Registration forms are HERE, and must be submitted to Grand Lodge by February 10 for Las Vegas and March 17 for Reno. Master Masons may attend all three days; there will be a workshop entitled "Skills of Being a Brother", open to Entered Apprentice and Fellowcraft Masons on Saturday afternon. The Las Vegas conference will be held at Masonic Memorial Temple; the Reno conference will be held at the Downtown Masonic Center.
Masters, Wardens and members of all Nevada Lodges are encouraged to attend - there is a wealth of knowledge to be shared!





The Masonic Services Association of North America awarded their
"Mark Twain Masonic Awareness Award" for seven years.
Nevada is particularly proud that we had a Lodge receive this award
in five of those seven years.
