We are excited to let Royal Arch Companions in the State of New York that preparations for the Grand Chapter webinar are going well and to schedule.

A lot of work is being done by the Grand Secretary's Office, members of Grand Line, the Grand Convocation Technology Committee to make this Grand Convocation Webinar go to plan, and bring Grand Chapter into your home for this year only!


The exact timeline and Grand Chapter reports will be available in the coming week on https://ny-royal-arch.org/wp/


In the meantime main details are as follows:

Prior to 8:30 am you will be able to log into the Webinar with your personal link (Do not share the link it will work only once!) and you will hear music prior to the Webinar starting.


8:30 am Webinar will start promptly.
The work of Grand Chapter (Royal Arch Masons only) will continue through 11:30 am

Noon - 1 pm: Zoom link/password and details of Facebook streaming will be published shortly For the Public Installation of Grand Chapter elected and appointed Grand Line Officers will occur. Then the new Grand High Priest will virtually obligate the appointed 2021 District Deputy Grand High Priests and the appointed 2021 Assistant Grand Lecturers.

As the Anointing Ceremony will not occur at Grand Chapter this year, arrangements will be made by the new Grand High Priest to have all new elected High Priests in Chapter's throughout the State to be contacted and a suitable anointing to be arranged.
Any Companions who belong to a Chapter in the State of New York are allowed to register, active membership will be verified.
Recently exalted Royal Arch Masons are welcomed to share in this unique experience, you would not usually enjoy attendance until you are a Council Officer in your Chapter.


Also, our regular visitors from other Grand Chapters in the North Eastern States/Ontario/Quebec/General Grand Chapter - we of course will recognize your details.

Email to confirm receipt of registration will be sent within 24 hours.
Personal ZOOM Webinar link will be sent closer to 3/6/21.
Companions this is to update you on the upcoming Grand Convocation which will start at 8:30 AM on Saturday March 6, 2021.

This year it will be a hybrid meeting, what does this mean?
For the health and safety of the membership, we are limited to 25 physical attendees. Only the companions needed to open the Grand Chapter Session will meet in person prior to the Webinar being broadcast at 8:30 AM.
 
The rest of the companions will be asked to register for the webinar/voting (the link is listed below) and will be able to join in to watch the hybrid Grand Session, the Zoom link is personal to the individual, please no sharing of the Zoom Webinar link you will receive, otherwise only the first person using that link will be able to attend. 
This is currently in progress and may experience a delay in receiving the webinar link.

As it is a webinar, you will be able to view the physical attendees. Your video will not be shared, however, the moderator will control any required voice participation from Companions on the webinar as required. This will be explained during the webinar. 

I ask that you register as soon as possible, so if you are a voting member of Grand Chapter you can receive the link for the separate secure voting system being used, should voting attendees need to vote. So please submit your annual return & per Capita to the Grand Secretary's office ASAP, otherwise your Chapter will not be entitled to vote. 

Grand Chapter will be held on March 6th and will be a one-day event. 

During the webinar, the business of Grand Chapter will be conducted along with the election. The private installation of the Grand High Priest will follow then the webinar will close. At that point, the Grand Chapter will then be closed. The webinar will reopen for the public installation of the Grand Chapter Officers, this part will be open to all who would like to join in. The Public Installation webinar link will be published closer to the time and Facebook live streaming is planned.

For any issues with registration, contact the Grand Scribe, R∴E∴ Jason Sheridan, email: js.nyram@gmail.com Text or Call 201-240-9609.

With Fervency and Zeal,
R∴E∴Brian Singer
