The 48th Triennial Assembly of the General Grand Council

Closing

Many Companions have come together to assist with the “Credentials” Committee. I put that in quotation because in reality, it is an ad hoc Triennial Committee with A LOT of work – which they are doing in support of bringing this together – many in spite of competing priorities in their jurisdiction, dealing with vocational and familial issues during a pandemic, and all of them working in a fluid environment to adapt to our circumstances and keep our organization working and our Craft moving forward.

COMPANIONS, THANK YOU ALL!
