REPORT OF THE OFFICE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge A.F.& A.M. of Minnesota
The office management Committee is tasked with overseeing the functions and activities of the Grand Lodge office. Pursuant to section G2.02(8) of the Minnesota Masonic Code, the Office Management Committee shall review and oversee the operations of the Grand Lodge office. In doing, the need of our members, our Constituent Lodges, and those of the Grand Lodge are continually evaluated and, we hope, well met.
It is the goal of the Grand Lodge office to operate as efficiently as possible. Our Grand Secretary, Keith Reierson, is assisted in that work by Peter Van Osdol. Minnesota Masons and others benefit from the professional management skills and experience these brothers possess. Praise from Constituent Lodges, as well as from representatives of other Masonic jurisdictions, confirms that the Grand Lodge of Minnesota continues to benefit from one of the best managed and respected Grand Lodge offices in Masonry.
The workload of the office continues to increase, and technology plays an even-greater role in our fraternal life and business. The Office Management Committee is pleased to report that our Grand Lodge Staff has been more than equal to the challenge. We doubtless join you in thanking them for the excellent work they do.
Expanded use of the Grand View member management and communications platform has increased the efficiency of the Grand Lodge office and helped lodge secretaries around the state. Most lodges that use Grand View find it very helpful and easy to use.
Please refer questions and concerns pertaining to the Grand Lodge Office to Grand Secretary Keith Reierson at 952-948-6700, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
