On Saturday, October 3rd, Most Worshipful Brother Charles F Marlowe, kicked off the Grand Lodge of Indiana’s leadership course at Orak Shrine Center in Michigan City. In addressing the 23 participants of the inaugural class Grand Master Marlowe said, “Your Grand Lodge has endorsed and collaborated with the Leadership Team at the Orak Shrine Temple to bring you what I consider one of the best leadership training programs to be offered in recent years.”
The course based on the Dr. John C. Maxwell’s “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership,” focuses on leadership behavior and as Grand Master Marlowe put it, “is not Lodge specific but life specific.” The presenters were William Bailey, Potentate of Orak, Rick Elman, a past Grand Master and currently Chief Rabban , John Bridegroom, High Priest & Prophet, and Dean Larson.
The program will be repeated at three other locations. The next session will be held at Speedway Lodge No.729, in Speedway Indiana on Saturday, November 7th. The contact person is Timothy Hewett, 317-837-1250. Oakland City Lodge No.467 in Oakland City will host the event on January 30, 2010; contact Chawn Caniff, 812-664-3883 and the final session will be held on February 27, 2010 at Webb Lodge No. 24, Richmond Indiana.
