The Ugle Strategy 2022 and Beyond.
The Quarterly Communication in December was the launch of the UGLE strategy 2022 and beyond. The Pro Grand Master Jonathan Spence pleased explained it has been something of a journey for the Strategy Working Group in formulating and designing the Strategy for Freemasonry, 2022 and beyond. Its purpose is clear: to ensure that Freemasonry under the United Grand Lodge of England continues to thrive and to strengthen it for the future.
This journey has not been one undertaken by the Strategy Working Group in isolation. There have been presentations to all Metropolitan, District and Provincial Grand Masters and Grand Superintendents and we have benefitted from their advice and recommendations, many of which have been incorporated into the strategy being launched today.
Our Very own ProvGM John Thompson was invited to take part in a panel discussion and his comments and that of the fellow contributors can been see Here:
John Commented “ We all want our organisation to thrive especially here in Durham, our Executive will be launching our regional strategy in the coming weeks”.
