Certified Lecturers' Information

The importance of Certified Lecturers cannot be overstated. Within the Fraternity lecturers are the guardians of the ritual--the keepers of the work--protecting the initiatic rites of Freemasonry from innovation or deviation.

Below you will find a schedule of the Board of Custodians' meetings, Certified Lecturer examinations, and Lecture Service requirements. In the sub-tab "Forms and Links for Lecturers" at left and below "Certified Lecturers' Information," there are also several links to important information such as forms, applications, and reference materials, as well as historical information concerning the Masonic ritual and its keepers in North Carolina.
