Automatic Dues Payments are Convenient & Efficient

In an effort to modernize the dues payment method in line with the 21st Century Masonic Renaissance, R.W. Grand Master Thomas K. Sturgeon has announced a new automated withdrawal dues payment program which will be implemented through Payliance at no cost to lodge members.

The new method makes the dues collection process much quicker and easier both for members and lodge secretaries. Each member of the lodge may have his dues paid by simply authorizing automatic withdrawals from either his savings or checking account. By allowing this method of payment, members take care of their obligation and help the lodge to pay its obligations on time. Payment can be made in full or by installments, and can significantly reduce, and hopefully eliminate, suspensions for non-payment of dues.

In addition, members may make contributions to their lodge charity and/or Masonic Charities, should they wish. They will even be able to use this method to pay for lodge events and activities in the same manner.

Grand Master Sturgeon highly recommends and encourages all members to participate in this new program. To enroll, simply request a form from your lodge secretary, fill it out and return it to him.
