It is a common misunderstanding that you have to be invited to join Freemasonry. The correct procedure is, in fact, that you should apply to join. However before taking this step you need to satisfy yourself that it is indeed an organisation that you wish to belong to and that you have no misconceptions as to your expectations of Freemasonry. Freemasonry is not an organisation intended to give or create business or career advantages - on the contrary, on entry into Freemasonry a candidate is required to state unequivocally that he expects no material gain from his membership. This mistaken belief has led to many candidates being disappointed and resigning their membership after a relatively short period of time. There are certain formal requirements that have to be met before you can apply to be initiated into Freemasonry.


Oscar Wilde

Henry Ford

Nat King Cole

George Washington
