Membership of QCCC

What do I get when I join?

All members, individual and institutional, receive a copy of Ars Quatuor Coronatorum, the Transactions of Quatuor Coronati Lodge. The volume is produced towards the end of each calendar year and usually mailed out in December or January to all members current as of the prior 30th November. AQC provides the full text of all papers delivered during the year and the questions and answers that followed; the volume also contains book reviews, ‘notes and queries’, and shorter articles of Masonic interest. If you are missing a recent edition of AQC, you can purchase a copy here.

Members receive priority booking and discounted entry to conferences and symposia arranged by Quatuor Coronati, and enjoy discounts on non-QC regalia and books from our partner suppliers. They have access to the Research Services offered by the Lodge, including assistance with research queries, a service provided by QC volunteers in conjunction with the staff of the Museum of Freemasonry at Great Queen Street in London. Members can also request copies of past papers from in-copyright volumes of AQC for personal research purposes. We ask for a small donation to cover scanning costs.

Members who provide their email address receive regular reminders of our Lodge meetings and other events, and can download a soft copy of the Summons and copies or summaries of Delivery Papers. Those who are members of a lodge in a constitution recognised by the United Grand Lodge of England are entitled and welcome to attend QC Lodge meetings and warmly encouraged to stay for drinks and dinner, which provides an opportunity to meet the speaker and members in a relaxed setting.

All members of QCCC regardless of rank are encouraged to purchase and wear the Quatuor Coronati Correspondence Circle breast jewel, tie and lapel pin, all of which are approved for use in Lodges.

Email updates are sent to members on a regular, usually bi-monthly, basis.
