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, region or province. 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. The workload can vary but, in general, 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; set a target to recruit at least a couple of new members each year and if you do so easily, set a higher target!
- 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 the Provincial GL or Grand Lodge Yearbook;
- distribute our QCCC Flyer at lodge meetings and display it in Masonic Halls;
- contact relevant Masonic research libraries and encourage them to subscribe to AQC;
- print off and distribute our QCCC Triofold Brochure;
- print off and distribute our Tri-Fold Conference Brochure and our two Conference Flyers: Washington Conference Flyer # One; Washington Conference Flyer # Two;
- 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 and share ideas 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.
The Regional Secretaries provide a link between Local Secretaries – our ambassadors – and QC. They help to organise events specific to their regions, and provide support and guidance.
