The Honor Lodge Program consists of mandatory, and optional requirements.
The mandatory requirements are generally actions that any good lodge will be doing on a year to year basis. The optional requirements have a possible 1600 points in activities that many lodges do on a regular basis.
To receive the award a lodge must document completion of the mandatory requirements and optional requirements that total 700 points of the possible 1600 points.
The Master of the Lodge must sign the requirements application form after it has been completed and then forward it to the appropriate District Deputy for verification, approval, and signature.
The District Deputies will forward the approved applications to the Deputy Grand Master by March 1. Awards will be presented at the Grand Lodge Annual Communication.
