    I am Master of Gorman Lodge 716 and I want to join Eastland Lodge 467 (dual membership). The Certificate of Good Standing requires the signature of the Master of the Lodge, as well as the signature of the Secretary. As Master, can I (or should I) sign my own Certificate of Good Standing?

    Yes I think it would be proper since you are the Master.

    In a situation like this I think the past master or current Senior Warden would be the appropriate person to sign it.

    The form says WM and Secretary. I would sign it. The secretary offers the independent verification. If it was only one signature I would be more concerned. Ask the secretary what he thinks.

    I signed the CGS and it was attested to by the Secretary. Thanks for all the replies.
    Peace and harmony.
