    How many terms can Prince Hall Grand Masters serve? There's only been 21 MW Grand Masters since 1875. I apologize for my lack of knowledge on the subject;)

    As many years as they desire and are elected by a Grand Lodge Session vote.

    Incidently I think a one year only term for Grand Master is harmful to the Craft.

    In the Mainstream Grand Lodge of Massachusetts the Grand Master serves three years.

    Grand Masters here in Texas(PHA) can serve as long as the craft elects them to the position. Each Jurisdiction is different in (PHA). In Washington DC they only have a 2 year term as GM.
