    I could be wrong, but I don't think such an organization would really have public recruiters. It's probably sort of a "don't call us, we'll call you" situation.

    Definitely.  Sometimes if you know someone who is already in, they can possibly get you in.  Or if you have had a relative (i.e., a grandfather) who was a member currently or in the past, then they might let you in.

    You don't just join the Masons. You can join if you had a family member that was a Mason. However, you will have to have their full name, date of birth, date of death..if dead.
    You may want to do some research on the Masons before becoming a member.

    I am the current Master of St. John's Lodge No. 1, Portsmouth, NH.  If you are interested in becoming a Freemason the best thing to do is to visit a Lodge in your area and ask for a petition to take the degrees of Freemasonry.  Lodges have monthly meetings called Stated Communications.  These meetings are on a given day of each month (although some Lodges go dark in the summer), for example the first Friday of the month.  Generally there is a dinner before the meeting.  since you are not a member you can't attend the meeting itself but if you show up for a dinner and say that you are interested in joining you will get a warm welcome and an invitation to dinner.  This will let you meet the members and get to know something about the Lodge.

    The members of my lodge have a saying: To be one, ask one. smile
