    Curious as to which officers your lodge elects vs the ones that are appointed by the Worshipful Master.

    We elect WM, the Wardens and the Treasurer. The rest is appointed. But the WM nominates the candidates for the elected offices. They just have to be approved by the brotherhood.

    Hazard #676 elects WM, SW, JW, Treasurer, Secretary, SD, JD, and Tyler. WM elect appoints SS, JS, and Chaplain.

    Our lodge bylaws state that all elected and appointed officers must have certificate of proficiency prior to assuming office.

    Not smart enough? I'd say some out-going WM must have stepped out for a pottie break when they decided he would go straight into the Tyler's place. WOW! Truly a case of "hold on for posterity!"
