There is still time, and openings, for the American Masonic Education Symposium, June 25 -27, 2015 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

This event will be host to some of the finest speakers and authors on Masonry in the country, and is well worth the time to attend.  It is very rare for these speakers to be gathered in one location, and rarer still for them to come to the Midwest.  This may be the opportunity of a lifetime.  Please don't miss it!

Registration is $175.00 which covers the cost of all meals and materials.  There are 3 wonderful Festive Boards planned with top notch menus at each and hors d'oeurves preceding them & two lunches. Hotel lodging will be on your own.  The Doubletree is only a few blocks from the Scottish Rite, and there are other hotels nearby.   

If you are unable to attend the entire Symposium, and only want to come and hear Ill Arturo de Hoyos or     SGC Ronald A. Seale, 33° speak the Festive Boards with hors d'oeurves are $50 each, and lunches will be $30.

All events will be held at the Cedar Rapids Scottish Rite, located at 616 A Avenue NE.  Attendance is limited to the first 200 registrants, so make your reservation today, before the last openings fill up.

You may register, and pay on-line through the Grand Lodge of Iowa webpage at:
or call the Grand Lodge Office at:  319-365-1438
