Signing Up for FEMS
October 02, 2014 to May 02, 2015
As our society continues to progress into the technology filled age, Scottish Rite is taking steps to follow the curve in a variety of ways. The fall of 2012 was met with the introduction of the new website and weekly newsletters to better inform our members about everything happening within the Valley and Scottish Rite.
2014 brought the Valley of Boston a new online event registration system to use for our various events. The Fraternal Event Registration System (FEMS) will allow members to register and pay for the events they want to attend in a more streamlined process. As with any new thing in our lives, from riding a bike to driving a car, growing pains do accompany the acclimation process.
To make yourself familiar with FEMS when registering for future events, please take the time to sign up with the system. A tutorial has been made to help with the registration process. Contact Webmaster David Abbott for any questions you may have. He is more than happy to help!
Dues, Diplomas & More
November 06, 2014 to December 31, 2014
As is the same when you joined your blue lodge, there are many items and opportunities afforded to you when you first join. Please take some time to read about dues cards, diplomas, and more:
Dues Cards & Diplomas: Beginning in 2011, dues cards moved from an annual, paper card to a more permanent, plastic version. The plastic version will have your name, valley, and a barcode that can be scanned when you attend valley events. This, along with a beautiful 11"x13" diploma, is currently being prepared for you. and has a time table of approximately 4-6 weeks before reaching your doorstep.
Class Picture: The Valley of Boston chronicles each One Day Class with a photo of all of the candidates. Photos going back almost a decade are displayed in the office in Boston. You can own your own copy to remember the day if you so choose. Photos will be available to purchase through the photographer, David Fox, by the end of the calendar year.
Become a Worker: There are many prospects for you to become involved within the valley; more so than being an actor for the degrees you witnessed last weekend. Helping out on the production staff, the medic corp, the choir or the Consistory Guard are all excellent avenues. If you have anything that interests you, do not hesitate to contact a Presiding Officer for more information.
