Constitution and By-laws

Constitution and By-Laws Revision 2013

At the 190th Communication of the Grand Lodge of Missouri, the Committee on By-Laws submitted and received approval of a revised version of the Constitution and By-Laws of the Grand Lodge of Missouri. This revision did not make any substantive changes in the law, it simply corrected errors, incorporated already adopted legislative actions of previous Communications, and added many helpful annotations to explain or aid in interpretation. At the conclusion of the 190th Communication, additional amendments that were adopted during that Communication subsequently were incorporated into the document, which was then distributed to the lodges in November 2011. The 2013 Revision is a printing of the complete document, incorporating all legislation adopted through the 192nd Annual Communication in September 2013.

If you have previously purchased a printed version of the Constitution and By-Laws, you are entitled to a copy of the revised version and update at no charge. If you have previously requested to be on the update notification list, you need not do anything, a new copy of the 2013 Constituation and By-Laws will be mailed to you. If you haven't requested to be notified (or you are not sure), please email grlodge@momason.org or call the Grand Lodge office.
