Getting Started With MORI

To get started with MORI follow the directions in this section to create your account.

This website is not MORI! Do not use the register function on this website! Please read and follow the directions in this guide to create your account.

What is MORI?

MORI is a complete online system for managing your lodge's information. It includes complete roster management, lodge financials and dues tracking, and mailing list management.

What makes MORI different than MLSS is that it is an online application. When you use MORI you are actually using the Grand Lodge database. Once you start using MORI you will not need to send routine paperwork for registry updates to New York, because you have the ability to put them into the database directly yourself.

MORI is also the system that is used internally by Grand Lodge to run the registry deparment.

Why use MORI?

The main benefit of MORI is greatly decreased paperwork between your Lodge and the Grand Lodge office. You will be able to submit all routine registry events, such as initiated, passed, raised, address change, death notice, NPD, dimit, restore, and cleared events. Once you enter an event it is done.

The MORI Menu

When you first arrive at the MORI page you will see a menu at the top, which includes the Help, Language, and Account items. Become familiar with the menu, as you will use it to navigate the system and access different functions.

Placing your mouse pointer over the menu will cause it to open up, allowing you to select the function you need to use. To select the function simply click on it.

Creating Your MORI Account

Where is MORI?

MORI is available using your web browser at:

Creating Your Account

The first step in using MORI is creating your account. On your organization's MORI page, listed above, use the menu to go to: Account -> Create Account. You will need your Grand Lodge/Chapter number, the number of a lodge/chapter to which you belong, and your birth date (not required in some installations). Step through the screens by filling in the forms and hitting the appropriate button at the bottom.

You will need to enter a password of your choice for your account, which must be a minimum of eight characters and a mixture of letters and numbers.

Why do we use a password and a key?

Once you have created your account, MORI will assign you an account key. This is an additional piece of information that is required to access your account. MORI uses this to create a more secure system, discouraging hackers from attempting to access the account due to the greater amount of information needed.

Getting and Inserting Your Key

After your account has been created, Grand Lodge/Chapter will mail you a letter containing your key. Once you have received the letter, go to your organizations MORI page. On the menu go to: Account -> Insert Key. Enter the key in the form, and click the button to insert the key into your browser.

You will only need to insert this key once to be able to access your account on MORI.

Note for advanced users: if you use multiple computers or web browsers to access MORI you will need to enter the key into each computer or web browser.

Logging in for the First Time

Once you have inserted your key, on the menu go to: Account -> Login. Fill in the form with your Grand Lodge number and the password that you created, and click the button.
