Hello everyone, I am in the process of petitioning my local lodge. I live in a pretty small town surrounded by other small towns and after roaming the Grand Lodge of Texas website I noticed a couple of things. The Grand lodge has both a web page and a social media presence while these local lodges near me do not…
For anyone who doesn’t know I am 22 years old. I’ll get to why I gave that information in a second. I’m sure this has been discussed many times on here before so I don’t see a need to get into this fact too deep but I am aware of the decline of members in the brotherhood at the time of my petitioning process some of this of course being attributed to the WW2 era being old and dying off.
Now I’ll get into why mentioning my age was somewhat relevant. Basically the question once I work my way through the degree work would it be appropriate to talking about creating web pages and managing other forms of an online presence for these local lodges that I am around? The reason I ask is because there is a big generational difference in the way my generation chooses to communicate and seek out information and how the older generations communicate. This disconnect I believe to be a big part of why smaller lodges struggle to have fresh faces.
As the saying goes. “To be one ask one.” A bit hard to do when the lodge doesn’t communicate the same way younger people like myself do.
Just curious on everyone’s thoughts.
