The Buckinghamshire Provincial Convocation was held on Thursday 22nd October 2020 at the Beaconsfield Masonic Centre, attended by six members of the Executive Team. The meeting was held adhering to all the government rules and Supreme Grand Chapter guidance. It was certainly not the meeting we would have all hoped for and to not have the acting officers with us was disappointing for us all. I am sure that at our Annual Convocation in 2021 we will be able to celebrate in our usual manner.
At the meeting, the Minutes of the meeting held on 25 March 2019 and the Provincial Accounts to 31 December 2019 were approved. E Comp Alan Clark was re-elected as Treasurer along with our scrutineer E Comp Neville Bird. Both of who continue to give excellent service in ensuring our finances of our Provincial Grand Chapter are in good stead. Whilst we did not have the full attendance or atmosphere of our normal Provincial meeting, we all enjoyed the companionship of the meeting and it was good getting back to limited ritual and indeed some Masonic normality.
Graham Dearing, Grand Superintendent Buckinghamshire.
