We've all had to sit through long, meandering, pointless meetings. Why should we allow our lodge meetings to be disorganized and annoying to sit through? Brothers Ainslie and Toby dedicate this episode of the Three Links Odd Cast to guiding you through the best practices for holding a lodge meeting so that business can get done in a quick but thorough way. They start with the preparations that should take place before a meeting and then cruise through the Opening, Order of Business, and Closing, explaining each part along the way. This episode is chock full of useful and interesting information about how to make our lodge meetings useful, engaging, and informative. It's an especially great episode for any first-time elected lodge officers. The lodge Shoutout for this episode goes to Pride Of The South Lodge #6 of Atlanta, Georgia, for their involvement with a local elementary school. In the Odd Podge, Brother Ainslie shares his experience with the beautiful memorial service at the Grand Lodge of Illinois while Brother Toby shares the exciting news about another new lodge.
