    The only way a PHA Brother be a member of another Lodge is by Demit. or change affiliation to that Lodge.and he must be in good standing..A Brother can visit any Lodge he wants, but he must have a good dues card....

    Actually, there are a few PHA jurisdictions that allow plural or dual memberships. I think Minnesota is one.

    It depends on the dues. Each lodge is different. There are local lodges around here that charge $250 annually while there are some that may charge as low as $50. Quite a few belong to multiple lodges òut here. I can only afford one now and the Shrine dues. But I would like to be able to join other lodges in the near future.

    Ive been told this multiple times...my question is what if a bro buys a life/endowed membership and then moves to another jurisdiction...does he have to give that lifetime membership up?

    firs just start allt it's gotta be voted on by the Craft, liked all petitions, or they can start all over to eliminate the process of healing.

    Sadly, this is all we get on this forum now is a necropost here and there or a drive by I want to be a Mason from X country. It used to be a fairly vibrant forum.

    Things ebb and flow Brothers.. but one thing is always with us - necroposting !
    I often don't mind it when it bumps interesting stuff, but an antient operational question with a simple answer... well, no so interesting..

    Excuse my old-geezer bad-tempered rant, but why don't some of the moaners post a "vibrant" thread instead of complaining?
    It's not what your forum can do for you, it's what you can do for your forum.
