How many offices can one man hold in a lodge at one time ?
Also, the WM, SR and JR Wardens, Secretary and Treasurer cannot be a Trustee since the trustee is an elected position
The outgoing master is always nominated to be the trustee. This year our outgoing master was sick the night nominations were done so our Tyler, a PM is one of three trustees.In jurisdictions that require trustees do they ever have a chair on the floor? I figure the principle is simple - I only have one butt so I can only fill one chair. One appointed/elected for the year, one protem for the meeting.
With a temple corporation board I'm used to a list of elected officers being proforma members of that board, with the other members of the temple corporation board appointed or elected in a process that's separate from lodge officer elections.
I am sure that each GL has their own requirements. If a man wanted to be WM of two different lodges simultaneously, that would be a stretch. In KY (and other states), some offices are elective, some are appointed. In my home lodge, the same man was secretary (elected), and marshal (appointed) simultaneously. A man could be an officer in his blue lodge, and in an appendant body, simultaneously. I would urge anyone to be cautious, and not take on too many duties, and attempt to fill all these positions, simultaneously. A man must keep balance between his Masonic activities, and his professional and family responsibilities.
