    The same amount as an EA, a year. It's the Master mason who has 90 days. If one goes over the time limit, one must petition for advancement after turning in their work. (Someone correct me on the details if I'm wrong.)

    I am curious about the master's time limit because it is silent about that? Isn't there another article dealing with a MM who does not perform his proficeny and A.L.L. program in 90 days?

    A brother has 90 days after being raised to complete the ALL program AND be found proficient in his esotoric Masters work. See below.
