The 63rd Annual South-Central Regional York Rite Conference is fast approaching.  The conference will be held on September 18th - 19th, 2020 as an electronic "virtual" conference.

The General Grand Chapter portion of the program will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, September 18th, 2020.  This year’s program will continue to build on our previous themes of (i) member recruitment and retention, and (ii) Capitular education.  We will also be hearing from a scientist whose research has been funded by our charity:  Royal Arch Research Assistance.  There will be time for the Grand High Priests in our region to report on the activities in their states.  Finally, we will hear from our General Grand Chapter Officers as they outline their plans for the forthcoming Triennium.

Further details and Zoom login information is posted on our webpage:

The conference will continue on Friday afternoon with the General Grand Council session and on Saturday with the Grand Encampment session.  Leadership Training portions of the program will be held on both Friday and Saturday.  Those Companions interested in the Leadership Training should contact the Program Administrator S. Lane Pierce ( directly.

Holding a regional conference “electronically” will be a new experience for us.  It will have the benefit of allowing Companions who would not otherwise be able to travel to a conference to participate.  Similarly, it will allow Companions interested in the Leadership Training Program to participate without having to travel. 

Thanks in advance for your help in promoting the Regional Conference and Leadership Training among your Grand Officers and members.  If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.  I'm looking forward to seeing you all "virtually" on September 18th.
