    Exactly! Just one more body to pay dues to.

    it's been discussed, but I doubt it would happen. (even being aware of the current situation in your State.. not good.)

    How many of your lodge officers would travel to a National Grand Lodge to participate in the decision making? Many lodges aren't even represented at the state level because traveling a couple hundred miles is too much for many.

    I attend Grand Lodge every year. I wouldn't if it were in D.C., New York, Lost Angeles, etc.

    Warrior, I'll agree this could be a very contentious subject. Politically, I am very conservative and naturally rankle at the idea of a centralized government. But, the situation with Arkansas will never be corrected unless, somehow, someone is able to step in and make them straighten up their act.

    As am I Brother.
    I certainly understand why you are frustrated with the situation in your state Brother. But I think a better solution would be for the rank and file to elect Grand Lodge officers who would "clean house" and straighten things out rather than to create a national governing body.

    Many of us are sympathetic. A national GL ain’t gonna happen, if for no other reason than AR wouldn’t agree!
    The outside input comes usually from suspending recognition. KS has done so. OK did so briefly. Another GL is considering action.

    However, I agree with our other brother: it is AR brothers who must step up. It is somewhat of a “stop me before I kill again” argument to ask others to do so for them.

    I do note that other GLs have looked favourably on affiliating members from AR.
