    Close but not quite- some appointed GL officers are titled "Worshipful"- check your Monitor in the section regarding reception of GL officers.

    I assume this applies to DDGM's? When I speak in the presence of our DDGM, I usually say "Worshipful Master, Right Worshipful Sir(s), Wardens and Brethren".

    Not sure I understand what you're asking, but DDGM's do hold the honorific of "Right Worshipful" during their term of office.

    That is the way I was taught, dropping the Wardens to Warden if you serve as one.

    Should not the senior officer (the GL rep) be addressed BEFORE the WM?

    Only if the DDGM is in charge of the Lodge at that time. Otherwise, the WM is in charge & should properly be addressed first.

    That's correct.... Even if the Grand Master is in the Lodge at the time.... It always starts out with Worshipful Master...... Then the Grand Lodge officer's and so on.......

    Don't forget that all Past Grand Masters are Right Worshipful's for the rest of their life.

    In MA, a GM is called Most Worshipful Grand Master (name). A PGM is called Most Worshipful Brother (name). It used to be only the sitting GM was called MW and PGM were RW but they changed that a few years ago. I like it. It's like once a President always a President.
