Local Secretaries

Our Local Secretaries are volunteers and benefactors who promote QC and QC’s Correspondence Circle within a designated geographic region. We encourage those interested to apply and do not place a hard limit on the number of Local Secretaries allocated to each country or region. Local Secretaries should be paid-up members of QCCC and members of lodges established in a constitution recognised by the United Grand Lodge of England. Being so permits attendance at QC lodge meetings, although regular attendance is not a requirement.

A Local Secretary’s ambassadorial duties are to:

  • spread the word about Quatuor Coronati and the QC Correspondence Circle in their region or country, and promote QC/QCCC events, such as our US Conference or UK Symposium;
  • contact the relevant Grand, Provincial or District Grand Lodge and ask that they provide a link on their website to www.quatuorcoronati.com , and perhaps a web page giving details of QC and QCCC;
  • ask that they place a QCCC entry in their Provincial or GL Yearbook;
  • distribute the QC / QCCC 2-Sided Flyer at lodge meetings and at the annual communication;
  • contact relevant Masonic research libraries and encourage them to subscribe to AQC;
  • print off our QCCC Tri-fold Brochure to display in Masonic Halls and distribute at Lodge meetings;
  • print off and distribute our Tri-Fold QC 2018 Conference Brochure and QC Conference Flyer;
  • contact research lodges in their area to forge links with QC;
  • identify Masonic researchers and encourage them to join QCCC and consider submitting research papers; a number of Local Secretaries also run Facebook and WhatsApp groups, which have proved highly successful;
  • assist in arranging appropriate events, including lectures by members of QC, in order to encourage Masonic research; and
  • cooperate with other Local Secretaries and the relevant Regional Secretary (see below).

In return, Local Secretaries:

  • have the distinction of being an ambassador for QCCC;
  • are acknowledged as such in AQC or on the website;
  • are entitled to wear a specific (dark blue) QC jewel and lapel pin; and
  • assist in advancing a broader knowledge and understanding of freemasonry and masonic history.
