    We lose 3 out of 4 EA's I have heard but seeing CA loses 1 out of 3 we are either doing really really bad or I heard a rumor and not a fact? Anyone else heard this and maybe have a cite I cannot even recall who told me that unless it was you sirius?

    i think a part of it i when people petition they do not fully understand what is going to be expected from them. i have always enjoyed meeting candidates and explaining to them the expectations and tim of our learning requirements.

    Rhit your numbers are about what I remember hearing from the Grand orator a few years ago. I know at Saint Johns those numbers hold pretty true. At Allen we lose VERY few but we are pretty agressive about getting them involved and in 'training'.

    Yes that is correct. It is notable however that the GL of CA has taken on a amazing new approach to Masonry. check it out. http://www.masonicrestoration.com/formation.html
