    Sounds interesting. Is this something that each state GL publishes?

    Most of the time when recognition happens it is simply asked for and voted on. For full traditional recognition there's no need for a compact that lists the details of the agreement.

    It is my very biased opinion that any recognition that involves a compact is actually the establishment of a second class status among jurisdictions, with both jurisdictions placing each other in that second class status. Just vote full and traditional without any need for a compact in my very biased opinion.

    Oh, I see. So a compact is a written agreement concerning recognition between two distinct lodges?

    That is the usual subject in the US. It may also cover other issues, as with the Home GLs concordat.
