Active, current members may attend through the highest degree that they hold, in order to become more familiar with the procedures of producing degree rituals, as they apply to ritual officers both presiding and assisting.

Members of the Third Degree and above seeking to apply for an Oasis Initiator's charter may interview for the endorsement of the training Sovereign Grand Inspector General at the lodge temple on the following morning, Sunday, 1 March.

Attending this training will qualify members of the Third Degree and above to attend Advanced Initiation Training offered by USGL, such as the weekend planned at Black Sun Oasis in Autumn of 2015.

Volunteers are needed to serve in the various officer positions (presiding and assisting) during the exemplification of degrees in the February traning. If you are planning to attend, and wish to help in this way, please contact at your earliest convenience.

There will be no fee for this training, but attendees are strongly encouraged to make generous financial donations to Aum. Ha. Lodge, which will be moving to a new location in 2015, and needs and appreciates all available financial support!
