The mission of Des Moines Scottish Rite of Freemasonry is to increase the knowledge of its members through expanded and enlightened teachings of the basic Masonic principles; to expand Masonic Fraternalism; to inform and educate the non-Masonic public about Freemasonry;  to develop, promote, support its charitable projects; and to provide assistance and support to the Symbolic Lodges and Masons in Central Iowa.

Scottish Rite Leadership Conferences 2018

The EaglesSupreme Council AASR SJ hosts leadership conferences in the even numbered years. The conferences are open to any Scottish Rite Mason to attend. This year there is a conference in Omaha, NE on Friday, April 6th (starting at 12 pm) and Saturday, April 7th. The Des Moines Valley would invite any members who would like to attend to do so. There are usually a variety of speakers and topics of interest for almost everyone. As the conference is much closer than usual, this might be one you would wish to attend.

Please note the Des Moines Valley is unable to cover the expense to attend but plans are in the works for an Valley/Orient dinner on the evening of Friday, April 6th. Should you choose to register, please let me know so I am aware of who from our Valley will be attending the conference and dinner.

I have been to several of these conferences over the years. They are a great way to meet other SR Masons, learn more about Scottish Rite, and interact with our National Scottish Rite leadership.
If you have any questions, please let me know. The details, including schedule, hotel, etc. are on the Supreme Council link below.

Sincerely and Fraternally,
Shane Harshbarger
Secretary / Registrar
Valley of Des Moines
Scottish Rite Consistory, 519 Park Street, Des Moines, IA 50309`
