Recognised LoIs

Early in the twentieth century a system of recognised Lodges of Instruction began. The Committee of Emulation Lodge of Improvement approves Preceptors as teaching the ritual in strict accordance with Emulation working, and this confers recognition on the Lodge of Instruction concerned. A Brother who aspires to work in the Chair at Emulation must normally have a “chit” from an approved Preceptor to certify that he is capable of doing the work to the required standard.

Each year in June at the annual Preceptors’ Festival, all the offices are filled by Brethren from recognised Lodges of Instruction, who demonstrate one of the three degrees (in rotation), followed by the Ceremony of Installation. This is therefore, in effect, a scratch team, many of the members of which will be strangers to the others, and it shows that it is possible for Brethren who have been trained in Emulation working in different parts of the country to come together and work successfully.
