Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

We are pleased to announce that Golden Lotus Oasis will be hosting an Initiator Training Workshop over the weekend of Saturday March 16 and Sunday March 17.

Saturday the 16th is open to Initiation officers of the Third Degree and above, to those officers who are intending to become Chartered initiators of this degree and above, and to any already Chartered Initiators, who would like to be brought up to date on official initiation changes. It is designed to instruct aspiring and continuing initiators in the requirements, standards and best practices for performing initiations of the Minerval through the Third Degree. The workshop will be led by two S.G.I.G.'s with many years of experience. Experienced Initiators are encouraged to attend to share their ideas and experiences. There is no cost to attend Saturday's class.

The workshop continues on Sunday, March 17th, with a full day of Adult First Aid and CPR training. Grand Lodge requires that all Initiators have current CPR and First Aid training, and recommends the same for initiation side officers. This class will be taught by a certified Red Cross Instructor, Frater S.L.Q. Upon successful completion of the training, those in attendance will receive certified CPR and First Aid cards, both valid for two years. The cost for this part of weekend's workshop is $40.00 to cover printed materials, training manikins and supplies.
